#46 Back to School Wardrobe: Purple Chico Jacket to Spring Vest

REFLECTIONS:
  • Winter Core Wardrobe included items in the closet and Re-fash Stash. Core included Grey/Black with Pinks, Wines, Greens.
  • Spring Core Wardrobe will include Spring Colors and transition fabrics.
BEFORE:
  • Too small purple Chico’s cordless corduroy jacket from the Re-Fashion stash.  Probably from Goodwill by the pound. 
  • Versatile color and weight for the Spring wardrobe.  
STEPS:  
  • Seam rip to remove sleeves and open side seams.
  • Serge all seams.
  • Cut / insert panel cut from sleeves into the side of the vest. Press / topstitch panel seams.
  • Use old t-shirt to cut facings for armholes. Cut facings across the shirt. There is enough stretch. Cut on the bias might be too much stretch.
AFTER: Versatile vest for the Spring Wardrobe.

What a great shade of purple. Very pretty, and very clever.
