Project Runway ReMake Challenge
Step one was to remove the shoulder pads. Shoulder details are in, but those puppies were huge! And the jacket had its own spiffy shoulder details. I shortened the jacket by about three inches, and took it in on the sides. I also chopped off the sleeves, and set those aside for later use (waste not, want not!). I removed the waistband of the skirt and also saved that to be reused as epaulette-like details on the shortened, gathered sleeves. My trusty iron was most needed for smoothing out the original collar of the jacket, getting it ready for a brand new neckline. I turned the skirt around, attached it to the jacket and removed a chunk from the bottom. That piece joined with the old sleeves to become a fun, new chunky collar that can be worn several different ways (see pics). I also reused the lace from inside the skirt hem to re-hem the jacket. The only new items on this jacket were the wooden buttons (and a belt for fun).
Not really sure, there wasn’t a tag. Seems like just a woven cotton.
