The connotations wearing my nerves thin
Could it be semantics generating the mess we're in?
I understand that language breeds stereotype
But what's the explanation for the malice, for the spite?

Very cool.  You just don't see enough vests anymore.  I love the zipper.

thanks! do you think it's wearable at all? it was a first time experiment.

Of course!  Wear it, but be prepared for people to tell you how awesome it is!

I'm glad you used the patterned side--it is eccentric and super cool! Smiley And the zipper looks neat going all the way up--great detail.

I love that the zipper goes all the way to the back. Great job!

It is better to destroy than to create what is meaningless.

That looks really awesome! I've been super into vests lately, so I might try something like this soon! Did you draw the pattern yourself, or use an already existing one?

Be careful with glitter. It never goes away. Glitter is the herpes of craft supplies.
