This vintage Moroccan waistcoat was in a very sorry state and in desperate need of updating and TLC to make it wearable.
I have changed the colour pallet from a gaudy electric blue,red and green using fabric paints. Added vintage Indian braid and block print fabric for the lining which all compliments the rich gold velvet.
It has a very Russian folksy feel to it now, very hip and very Bohemian and very much a piece worthy of the great Jimi Hendrix.
With so much versatility it can be that ultimate going out piece yet casual as with a white t shirt and jeans.
Size S/M/L depending how you wear it as it has an extendable clasp.
Shoulder to shoulder 37cm
Neck to hem 43cm
Chest closed 45cm
