The vest shown is already sold and not available. Yours will be made to order. Here is a luxurious item that can be worn as a cap sleeve shrug/bolero tied either in the front or the back, or a sleeveless collared vest. The first two pictures show it tied at the back. The third picture is tied at the front. To achieve this look, simply fold down the sleeves right at the top of the arm holes. For the vest look that is pictured in the last two shots, just don't fold as much of the top down. This results in a sleeveless look with higher collar. This way is best to tie in front just under the bust. As you can see in the last picture, there is a lovely circle motif across the upper back in plum purple and off white. The rest of it is crocheted in Autumn Red in a slinky lace pattern. It drapes over the body like a spiderweb. I wear medium sizes, so you can use that as a guide as to how this would look on you. I would venture to say that it would fit most body types as it can tie at your size, and the material has a lot of stretch and drape. I suggest experimenting with how you'd want to wear it, using my pictures as a guide. Unstretched, it measures 15 1/2" across the back, and the armholes are about 20" in circumference. Yours will be crocheted in a super soft acrylic yarn, and it is machine washable. I can make one in the same colors as the one pictured, or you can customize yours by requesting any other color/colors (please see my available colors on just about any other listing). It can be all one color, or I can incorporate as many colors as you want. Since this is made to order, please check with me to find out my lead time.
A little about me:
My husband and two little kiddos are my life. I'm a classically trained soprano. I never had a cavity until two years ago. I use too much salt. I've crocheted for 20 years. Favorite TV shows: Six Feet Under / Parenthood / Big Love (but I'm never on the couch without yarn and hook in hand). Favorite Musicians: Bjork / Rufus Wainwright / Joanna Newsom / Regina Spektor (and too many others to bore you with). I keep more yarn on hand than I need to. I gift crocheted items too often. I'm done with soy milk. Favorite Movies: Dancer in the Dark / In America. I delivered my baby boy Prior on 10/18/2012, and my daughter Matilda was a new years baby on 1/1/11 (3 minutes too late at 11:14). I enjoyed my epidural both times. :) I've never purchased mp3s online. I buy CDS. I want to try crocheting with cassette tape. Favorite quote from a nephew (overheard by his mother while approaching the boys' room): "Hurry, she's coming, hide it in your mouth!"
