Velvet Shrug

This was a fun little commission piece I did this week for a young mother in my neighborhood. The velvet is repurposed, from some vintage curtains that she trimmed to fit her dining room windows, and it's lovely stuff! Soft, not too thick, and holds it shape be-yew-ti-fully. (She agreed to give me a bit of it so I could make my own vest/shrug, as I'd fallen so in love with this one.) I made the pattern in imitation of another little shrug that she owned - that one was also velvet, but unlined and with different details. The fantastic silvertone button was supplied by the customer.

How cool is that button?!

And the lovely gal who commissioned it. =)
