Plain Velvet Jacket to Tuxedo-style jacket

This is again a very simple refashion. I thrifted this Purple Cotton jacket from my local thrift store a couple of years ago. I love the colour but it's a tad too big for me. I thought I should fiddle with it and wear it for the coming X'mas/New year.

I shortened the sleeves, re-sew a new centre back seam, added trim to the collar, changed the buttons and now it looks like this:

It doesn't look drastically different but I think it looks a bit more glam and fitted than before. You can see more photos about this project on My Blog..

Have you started sewing for the holidays yet?
