Embroidered Jean Vest

I used Kwik Sew #2895 to construct this vest out of a couple pair of my very old blue jeans.  I added tone on tone embroidery (4 colors) and hand sewn 2.5mm sequins for just a touch of bling.  Although not shown in a picture, I underlined the body of the vest with light weight blue bastiste to cover the undersides of the embroidery.  I believe garments should look just as nice inside as out.
