Waistcoat - 2

Here are a few photos of the finished waistcoat. At the last I thought the fluttery silk at the front was a bit too fluttery. Then my eye was drawn to a piece I have hanging in my studio with turquoise shell beads. I realised that would finish it off fine! And if I ever decide I want it fastening, rather than edge to edge, I can use the shells as a base for working a fastening out.
