If butterflies played hide and seek, the one camouflaged in this chic vest would win hands-down! The butterfly silhouette is stitched first, and then worked into a base mesh pattern to form the body of the vest. The back and front are crocheted as one piece up to the armholes for minimal joining. The front panels are highlighted with rows of wavy shell edging, and laced together with ribbon ties for a delightful bohemian effect. You can even highlight or disguise the butterfly depending on your choice of colors! This unique top can be worn over a swimsuit or shirt, and will look good anywhere from the beach to the mall!
This vest also has a story. I’ve started work on this project right after I’ve finished Ma Petite Kristin Top and it was planned as waist jacket or long coat for one secret project. But when Kristin saw the butterfly, she asked if we can turn it (even temporarily LOL) into something for her vacation. So I’ve did and it’s how we got this vest. My secret project is still on my schedule anyway as well as this vest ;o) I’ll keep you updated!
Funny, but I’ve just found (better late than never) that Windows Life Writer has such interesting feature - if you are adding couple pictures to your post at the same time, you have an option to insert them as album (which can be also customized):
