I found this 5 euro boxy, boring jacket at a thrift store, and saw its makeover potential.
Find the 7 differences:
- took in the sides, to give the jacket a bit of a curve
- shortened the sleeves to 7/8
- cut off the collar
- lowered the flaps
- changed the buttons
- added a ric rac ribbon
- added a flower brooch from the scraps
Et voila, ready for a second career!
buttons, scissors, ric rac ribbon
