#34 Back to Elementary School Wardrobe
REFLECTIONS: A 30 year professional wardrobe provides a large Re-fashion stash.
I have challenged myself to shop this stash for my return to teaching wardrobe.
BEFORE: A jacket from the re-fashion stash, bought in an auction lot of nicer clothing.
Too small and never worn.
STEPS: This will be a fun and loose swing vest.
- Use a seam ripper to remove the sleeves and to open sleeve and side seams.
- Serge all exposed seams to prevent additional fraying.
- Cut a wedge shape from the sleeves and lining. Insert into side seams to enlarge the sides.
- Cut and insert bias armhole trim from a fun color,
AFTER: Fun and loose swing vest to wear with a variety of purple tone turtlenecks.
Rumples in the after pics fill out when wearing.
