How to Sew a Textured Vest
This bohemian-style vest is cute, comfortable, and super quick to make. Its unique texture comes from a simple shrinking technique that essentially crumples fabric. Mary Ray shares this technique in this article from Quick Stuff to Sew, Vol. 5. To create it, choose a natural fiber fabric that has not been preshrunk. Then, machine-quilt at least three layers of the fabric together, finish the edges, soak the garment in water, and let it tumble dry-it will automatically shrink and pucker between the stitched quilting lines. Quilt, bind, and shrink fabric for this casual outer layer.
