This blazer was... interesting. I got it at a clothes swap a few months ago. No one had taken it yet by the end of the night, and it's obvious why. My husband's first comment upon seeing it was "It's never too late to begin a career in clowning."
But the colors are beautiful, and the fabric is a lovely silk/linen blend.
I cut trapezoids out of the fronts, back, and sleeves. Then, along with a scrap of black fabric and a zipper salvaged from other projects, I sewed it all back together into a skirt.
It's still fully lined, as the jacket was, and it still has pockets! The wild print is still wild, sure, but I think it works much better as a skirt than it did as a blazer.
