    I wish that I would have believed another reviewer, when they commented that it was very light weight. I had hoped to wear it for warmth on cool evenings, but I doubt that it will accommodate that wish. I do love the design and am very happy with my purchase.

      This is my third piece of Mieko Mintz apparel and my second vest. I love the way this one is cut higher in the front and lower in the back. Unlike my other vest, both sides of the fabric are equally interesting so this piece creates myriad wardrobe combinations. The reviewers who say this fabric is thin are correct but as one who dislikes heat, I welcome a stunning lightweight fabric!

        I just wore it today, though the weather was cold, so I wore it over a heavy black turtle-neck sweater and black wool pants. But I am planning to wear it all summer with lighter shirts and skirts. I have one of the artists's jackets which is warmer, and which I also love. These are outstanding works of art and make me very happy.

          This vest is a true work of art and doubly so since it can be worn with either side out. The stitching is intriguing, the pockets well placed and the length good at 5'4". It would do equally well on someone taller. My one negative observation, the weight of the fabric, is that a slightly heavier would fall away from the body better and maintain its unique shape better.

          A beautiful addition to any wardrobe

          Comments about Border A-Line Vest, Indigo, Size 1 (2-12):

          When I first received the vest and tried it on over a t-shirt I happened to be wearing at the time, I wasn't impressed. Once I put on slim black pants and a white shirt with the vest, I fell in love with it. It's very light and airy and the designs are lovely. Better yet, the vest is reversible, so you can get two looks for the price of one. I'm guessing that it looks best on taller people - I'm 5'7" and the model is 5'9" or 5'10".
