Remake of Papa's Plaid Sweater

This is all that is left of Papa's sweater
Good bye Perry Ellis sweater...
He gladly let my Grandma use it to make this
racer back vest and leggings for me.
Hello, Sassy Little BBC Racer back Vest
by ShwinDesigns
 with a little remake by Grandma Deborah


Grandma bought these yoga shorts for only $3 at a summer clearance. Look what she did with them!!!!!
A gathered skirt made out of featherweight wool.
This fabric raveled and Grandma finished some edges with bias seam tape.


Grandma also made a soft, bright, red t-shirt to contrast with the black and white fabric.
Smiles from:
Miss C and her Grandma
