  1. I had no idea you could make so many pretty things from ribbon. I LOVE your vest–hope you’re able to make it wearable again because I’d love to see a pic of it on you.

    1. I love doing silk ribbon stitches because they make you look so skilled… and you don’t have to be at all. 😀

      Cutting down the vest is on my to-do list, so it will get done one of these days!
