I made this amazing houndstooth crust punk motorcycle vest for a custom order. I just so happened to be about the same size as the person I made it for..lol.. It has a semi-fitted boxy feel and falls a little above the hip and made with black and white houndstooth home decor twill fabric. Black leopard stretch twill is on top collar (has three layers of fabric so it is extremely thick for that high end metal feel!). leather eyelet tape for decorative purposes on the shoulders, sideways black zipper placement, triangular yoke on back, and raw armhole edges and is fully lined with black cotton. It is super comfy and I'm hoping to make a vest design similar for myself, cause I'm in love Smiley
