This is an old denim jacket my granddaughter and I remade after it became to outdated. We cut off the sleeves and sewed a stablizing stitch around them. We did the same for the bottom of the jacket. We them added button holes to the back. We made a short peplum of lace attached to a bias stripe. We added buttons to the peplum to correspond with the buttonholes on the back of the jacket. We then used a q-tip dipped in bleach and wrote French words (she is taking french in High School) over the jacket. We then washed the jacket (minus the peplum). The edges frayed and with the added peplum it’s a great new fashion staple. Note: you can add different peplums by simply making extra ones with different lace or fabric and make sure the buttons correspond with the buttonholes.
