Re-fashion #2 for Quilted Vest

#86 Back to School Wardrobe

BEFORE: Vest in the Mending stash.
#1 Re-fashion last year from quilted jacket to vest included:
  • Used sleeves to cut/insert side gussets
  • Replaced buttons. 
  • Added denim and leatherette trim.
  • Faced the arm-cyles with binding. 
GOAL for this Refashion: Replace or recover peeling leatherette trim.

STEPS: I liked the original trim, which took time to apply.
I did not want to seam rip and replace the trim. 
  • Leave the trim in place.
  • Hand weave gold trim in place over the peeling trim.
AFTER:  Re-fashion #2. Vest is saved from the mending pile and ready to wear.
