Description

I found this 5 euro boxy, boring jacket at a thrift store, and saw its makeover potential.
Find the 7 differences:
I
- 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!

Material Notes

buttons, scissors, ric rac ribbon

    Great refashion. I love how a little tweeking can make things look so much more uptodate.
