Boro Vest - Part 4 - Ready to Wear

I've been busy stitching away on my Boro style vest ... it's taken a while but it's been a very enjoyable project ...  the hardest question is to know when you have done enough stitching !!!   Here is what the stitching looks like .....

Once the boro stitching was done, I machine stitched around the edges of the vest using a small stitch to secure the boro  and the edges.   I trimmed the edges and then used a quilt style binding to finish the edges and so it's done .... ready to wear ...

I'm very happy with the end result and I'm contemplating whether I might make another version using the softer colors of the yarn dyed fabric I've been collecting.

  1. Looks terrific - and think it (and version 2) will be both very pleasing and practical additions to your wardrobe. Should be very satisfied with the result - love it xxxx
