As a half-baked fan of sewing and quilting, I can appreciate the skills that these examples show off. I can also appreciate that they are warm enough for the toughest winters. I recognize that my uniform of dresses and cardigans for work hardly make me a fashionista, even among librarians. I still have to say no to wearing a blanket.
Actually, some of these patterns and color choices would make interesting quilts. However, a nice quilt doesn’t necessarily translate into a great fashion choice. This is right up there with my dislike of remade sweatshirts. (Type sweatshirts into our search box and behold the numerous examples of questionable clothing.) Most of these vests would only work as a themed restaurant uniform or hosting a bake sale at a church (as long as you paired them with some mom jeans.)
Let’s make a rule that quilts belong on beds.
