100 Mile Vest
Excuse me while I pose with my new friend: the vest for the 100-Mile Suit project. It sure is wild and wooly. I really love how the vest opening turned out- how the natural curves of the felted wool seem to fit together- you can't really see that from this picture, but it is really raw and pretty. Kelly and I decided to leave it open and not do any closures, which will only draw more attention to the open seams and the beautiful texture.
I am debating the look of the collar- one part of me really likes the roughness of it, but another part of me really wants to make it look more polished. Any ideas? Gotta figure it out before Sunday when the whole thing goes live at the ICA.
