FLASH--FLASH –Now it’s the girls who wear them.
These vests are made from men’s vintage ties. Each silk tie has been carefully taken apart to preserve that precious piece of silk design, coordinated with other ties, cut to fit and sewn back together to fashion a one of a kind silk vest. I started making silk tie vests for family and friends out of their husbands and father’s ties. Now those wives and daughters say they are the ones who wear the “ties” in the family.
These vests are very versatile – looking great with silks or denims. In fact one of my favorite looks is with jeans and a tee shirt. :
The backs are of a coordinating fabric and they are all fully lined.
Because they are made of silk these vests are dry clean only.
This vest is in shades of red and blue. Some of the ties date back to the forties. The back is of blue denim and it is fully lined in a navy blue. It has two red and gold buttons in the front.
