Keep the old good leather jacket!

The more I sew, the less I enjoy complicated projects...the same for refashion. I started by deconstructing a pair of jeans into a top, now I just cut off the sleeves of a jacket and sew the armholes together to get a skirt.

The leather jacket I found in a thrift store is meant for transformation. The leather is so soft and the folds are nicely gathered in the front:


It was so easy to cut the sleeves and use the waist as the waist for my skirt. Another upside down project that I love so much.


Wearing a leather skirt gives a wonderful feeling. Even more wonderful when you had it for 10 euros, right?
Have the full series of photos on my blog.

Wow! I looked at the other photos on your blog. That is such a designer look. Well done! looks like the wrap/ former neckline part also makes it still easy to walk.

Can I have this???? Pleeeeeease!!! So incredibly cool and I wish I'd done this and now I might have to...sheesh! I could gush for hours, but I'll simply end by saying that you are quickly becoming my favorite refashioner ;)
