Vampire Worthy Vest

What do you think?
Is is Alice Cullen worthy? Ha!!! I know, you all think I've lost it! - but at least I was inspired to turn my husband's worn out suit pants into a very cool vest. "Up"cycling at it's best!
I'll be wearing this to TwiCon, but I think I can wear it this summer over a tank top or just a tight fitting t-shirt. The 80's are making a come back - maybe I should dig out my leg warmers and go find a Toni home perm kit too, or...maybe not, I'm not that crazy.
I'm loving the buttons - they're vintage - I've been saving them for awhile now for that perfect project. I just love them so much that I didn't want to let them go and I so rarely sew for myself, so this was the perfect place for them.
I'm going to tell you about the t-shirt under the vest on another post - just some fun revamping.

Love it! If I weren't prego I would make one for myself! (I don't think it would get the same effect over a large belly!)

thanks - I can't wait to wear it. It's been so long since I've made something for myself (besides lounge pants that I wouldn't wear out of the house). Also feeling quite smart using the suit pants - the fabric I wanted would've cost at least $10/yard.
