Close up view of ribbon and fabric flowers and leaves embellished with silk ribbon embroidery, and bead embellishment.

Date Created: May 1998
Line: Vest
Techniques: Hand dyed lace, ribbon worked flowers and leaves, silk ribbon and traditional free form embroidery, hand embellishment
Fabrics: Silk, cotton lace, silk, metallic and satin ribbons

The silk base fabric was stitched with playful grids of randomly placed satin ribbons. These sections were then embellished with hand dyed lace and appliques resembling vignettes of baskets and vases.

Silk and satin ribbon worked flowers and leaves were stitched in place, with additional embroidery and beading. Silk ribbon and threads along with metallic threads were used for the traditional and silk ribbon embroidery accents.

Embellishments include: Mother of Pearl buttons and charms, glass buttons and beads and metal charms. The jewelry ensemble worn with this vest is the Purple Rose of Cairo.

This is a vest was made for the class that I teach also called Beribboned.
