TBT: 2nd refashion.

This Jacket is not the very first refashion I ever did... It's actually the second :) Hence the awful pictures...

This is from my own closet. It's a jacket I wore constantly in my larger days.

I couldn't bring myself to part with it so I shortened the sleeves, the bottom hem, and took it in a few inches at the sides.... Unfortunately, it was still stained from being in my closet for years without a garment bag. I dyed it with some Scarlet RIT dye to remedy that.

I absolutely loved it! I pretty much wore it all the time again.

So blurry...There's no saving these pics...

This jacket made appearances in future blog posts like my Kindergarten Revisited top...

You might notice the color is slightly different in these "Kindergarten" pics... that's because I dyed it again :) I kind of get bored REALLY quickly with my refashions. This new dye job bought me another year or so of mileage on this.

The pictures are much better at the very least :)

If you'd like to see the original post of this jacket refashion (my 2nd ever blog post), feel free. Just don't judge me for the awful pics or the ineptness of my blogging capabilities at the time :)

Happy Thursday!

I love the after. My favorite is the red, but I love red.
