Distressed Denim Jacket Refashion


Living in California means that fall always arrives late. I spend practically all of September and October wearing tees, with the exception of some chilly mornings when I can wear a light cardigan, lol. :)

Well, it's finally been chilly enough for a jacket, so I decided to do a refashion involving one of my old denim jackets. I wanted to make it trendier, and mostly I wanted to get rid of the sleeves because they were too short and tight. When I first started, I had a lot of ideas floating through my head, so I just refashioned as I went. Usually, I have a clear image of what I want something to look, but this time I didn't.

Here's what I did: 

I added a hoodie (just for fun and comfort)
I changed those uncomfortably tight sleeves into looser and comfier ones.
I lengthened it because the jacket was originally a tad bit too short.

I used some lovely distressed denim fabric from Mily Mae Fabric Shop to refashion my new denim jacket.
