Too Small to Just Right Cotton Ranch Jacket

#64 Back to School Wardrobe
REFLECTIONS: Re-fashions for Ranch House Clothes extend wear.
BEFORE: Too small ranch jacket from the closet. 
  • Quilted lining was worn and made this a bit snug. 
  • Too worn for good wear, but still good for ranch wear.

STEPS:
  • Seam Rip: Remove all lining from sleeve and body. Remove worn zipper.
  • Re-stitch and serge seams as needed. 
  • Leave zipper off.


AFTER: Lighter weight Spring Farm jacket. Handy for cooler mornings.
AFTER: Less snug
 Light Weight with lining Removed

I really like the green stripes down the arms. The quilting just disappeared. It looks great. Nice job.

Great job. That would be perfect for today's windy day here in OK.
