At the Sewing Expo in Novi, MI, Barb was one of the great volunteers who worked in the Reconstruction Zone. All of the volunteers were challenged to create a vest in purple to wear while they worked at the show. Barb took the challenge one step further and created her vest out of old jeans in keeping with the spirit of the Reconstruction Zone.
Barb took x pairs of jeans–some hers and some her husbands and dyed them purple. She cut the jeans apart and used the fabric to create the vest with collar and lapels using xxxxpattern.
