I choosed to call this vest with the Sanskrit name of the second chakra because the reddish orange flower center is positioned exactly on the back side of Svadhisthana. The 2nd chakra is associated with creativity and procreation. It also governs emotional and sensual aspects of our lives (passion).

This vintage doily inspired waistcoat's colors are: reddish orange, dark ocher yellow, sun yellow, grass green, teal, blue, and violet framed by black and multicolor yarns. Some of them are vintage, others are thrift store finds, the rest are recycled and new yarns. A great mix of wool blends and acrylic fibers! @;)

I literally gasped when I saw this... It's beautiful. It's so you and at the same time it's less flamboyant. I really really love it... Wish I could show it off Wink

I love that you named this for the sacral chakra. It really looks like you would radiate energy and light from there while wearing it. Beautiful on many levels. Smiley
