The Emmylou Vest

This handmade vest is inspired by one of my favorite musicians, Emmylou Harris. This vest was made by hand and took weeks to design and finish, making it one of the pieces of which I am most proud.

The patchwork cropped vest is a unique design created from reclaimed denim fabric for the outer shell and vintage flower-printed cotton for the lining and trim. The high neck can be worn up or down, however you like. The vest features round vintage wooden buttons handsewn onto the front with sturdy, bright red crewel thread. This is a truly outstanding piece and will be cherished by the wearer, I believe.

The vest fits like a S or M. Measures 16” from the top of the shoulder to the bottom of the cropped waistline; the collar is 4” tall from the collarbone to the top. The bust is 34” around and tapers slightly towards the waist.

The Emmylou Vest is SOLD, but I can sew custom versions of it upon request.
