Claire Tender Crochet Vest Easy FREE Pattern
by Kristin Omdahl
Layers are a wonderful way to express your style in a multitude of ways simultaneously. I love to add textures, colors and prints to my outfits through layers. A simple blouse or tshirt can be dressed up with a loose crochet vest and jewelry in contrasting or monochromatic colors. For example, this easy and beautiful vest could be worn in contrast to the shirt underneath to make the texture of the stitchwork pop. Or, worn over a monochromatic tshirt, its the texture of the yarn that pops.
This could be worn over jeans or capris OR a sundress or maxi dress. There really isn’t a wrong way to wear a vest!
