    formal wine wear

    I was inspired by a link in Links and Resources that showed a quilted vest for the wine bottle. I took it a little further and made a cocktail dress as well. I put batting in the dress top for a little more 'definition'. Since I used slippery fabrics, I had to do some quilting on the vest to keep the layers together. I actually made two sets for holiday gifts.
