Doilies are so delicate and fragile.

Combine these completely different textiles and create a delightful dichotomy by adding doily sleeves to an ordinary denim vest.

Use two round doilies with the same pattern or two round doilies with different patterns; each will create a nice look. Just make sure they are the same diameter.

Fold the doily in half and place it inside the armhole. Line up the doily fold with the vest’s shoulder.
