Marilyn was as amazing with her sewing machine as with her dye pot. This totally handcrafted vest is embellished with batik hummingbirds (approximately lifesized), each drinking from a flower probably modeled after the hummer's favorite trumpet vine. The garment is made from suede cloth and machine quilted in intricate patterns and very tiny stitches.
This one-of-a-kind garment is not sized, but would be considered a size small. Armseyes measure 18 inches and it hangs approximately 18 inches at the center back.
Made in America, in Columbia, Missouri.
