Delivered with her Aussie accent, Pam De Groot assured me that the stiff silk organza with even stiffer embroidery stripes on it would felt on the inside of a lined nuno vest without the need for fibres to “glue” it down … “She’ll be right” she said. And she was!
Again, I am grateful for the opportunity to learn from the amazing community of felt-makers from around the world, this time a Felted Vest with Pam de Groot. Every workshop (in person or on-line) is an opportunity to pick up more skills to make the fine felt products I aspire to create. The angle of the template, the curve of the neck, the patterning of the design, and the shaping of the “fit” were all techniques picked up from Pam.
Here is a snap of my vest which I’ve called my “NYC-Transit Vest”... although perhaps I should call it “She’ll be Right”!
