Blanket vest made from a reclaimed ‘Gaiety’ Irish wool blanket. A useful extra layer all year round.

The blanket I made this from was a gorgeous blue checkerboard wool, with an amazing label, which I unpicked and reattached to the finished piece.

For the lining, I pieced together parts of a recycled cotton/linen mix men’s shirt with a little asterisk-y star print just like on the Gaiety label, and kept one of the shirt pockets inside (with a replacement button). 

This cosy waistcoat is finished off with binding and button loops cut from deadstock brushed cotton, and three found wooden buttons.

As ever, hand made by me entirely from reclaimed materials, even the thread.
