Tweed Peplum Blazer to Skirt

This weekend, I decided to turn this too-large pink and brown herringbone blazer into... a skirt!

I cobbled together a basic pencil skirt from the sleeves, upper back, and upper fronts. The lapels formed the back slit, the collar became part of the waistband, and the pocket flap band was salvaged as a peplum - with pockets still functional!
