Right off the pages of our newest book, Boro and Sashiko: Harmonious  Imperfection is the Rectangle Wrap Vest. This iconic piece is not only simple to make but it is flattering on every frame and figure. Join us for a make along as we take you step by step through the process of making this boro vest with sashiko embellishments. We’ll start with measurements to ensure your finished project fits perfectly, then move on to the basics of stitching and even give you our tips and tricks for FAB finishing details on the hems and armhole binding that will give your final garment a professional finish.
