Chunky Lace Vest

Have you been enjoying the Make it for Me event hosted by ELK Studio? I look forward to this event each year, because I really love the sentiment!

That's why I decided to go with a bigger project this time around! Why is this the perfect make it for me project? Because we often times make great projects for other people and not for ourselves. We all deserve to add beautiful new pieces to our wardrobe! And this one is so quick to work up, there's no time to feel guilty!

I really hope you enjoy it!
