First of all, I haven't been on craftster for a while, [I forgot my old password and I didn't even use that email anymore, I figured I could make a new one.], but I'm so mad that I didn't check back often to because everyone's making amazing things!

Anyway
I absolutely love elephants!
My friend gave me this sleepwear outfit a long time ago from Cambodia
that has elephants on them
and its basically this wrap skirt
and it was like a yard, so I decided to make it into vest.
However there wasn't enough to use to make the whole vest,
so I made the sides with some left over pieces of black fabric.
 So I guess its eco friendly?
Now I'm just on the search for some thrifted buttons.
and I have to iron it.


I used a burdastyle pattern, but ditched it in the end
b/c it was too big for me, so I had to tailor it,
but I couldn't too much because it would ruin the back.

Front





Back


It doesn't look as tacky when worn haha.
