Retro Teal Berry Brocade Vest

This summer I made a brocade vest. The brocade was originally a really dark green and I dyed it into a teal. It took me two tries to get the perfect color I wanted. I learned that Rit Dye works best. I used a navy blue liquid dye. It was something I just did for fun. The idea was in my head and I was way too anxious to let it just stay there. It's a women's vest but it could so easily be a men's vest without the heart buttons. I love the fact that the brocade floral print came out a berry color and the inside has more of the berry faded solid with the green brocade print showing.
