Nunu Felt Vest 羊毛雪紡背心

It's a hot summer weekend. I still love playing with wool. I tried this nuno felt vest in the weekend with mix medium. Materials are mainly silk chiffon and wool, white is the basic one. Small pieces are for pattern, plus some lace, some mulberry silk and the resist template.



Lay the wool, chiffon pattern, mulberry silk over the resist and cover with wool.



Wrap both and do the "rock & roll" for approx. 25-min.






Here turned out the finished vest

- the front


The back.


I fixed it with my handmade ceramic button. This vest can be a summer top or in winter goes with a sweater.



Close up of texture.


I've made some ceramic buttons just for wool felt clothes or for fabric bags. Love to do own handmade stuff as much as possible.


OMG ! Who thrown all over and broken a few pieces ? Mogi curious on it, as well Tiger.



Oh it's you both Mogi and Tiger chasing over the table and poured the container upside down. Fortunately only broken 2 pieces.




Cats, I love you and have to tolerate what you've done. That's me the "cat slave" !

  7. Hi!
    Congratulations on this wonderful vest.
    The percentage of scaling a template?
    40% or 50% more?
    Thank you in advance for your answer!
