To recreate a silk blazer that was dull and lifeless.
i used RIT Dye color remover and soaked the blazer for about an hour and half to remove almost all of the color. Then dyed it with RIT ORANGE SUNSHINE . Let it dry. Cut the sleeves off. Cut new sleeves out of silk chiffon fabric ( to be able to say 100% silk blazer) and changed the buttons. Then did a french seam on remaining strip of fabric in order to add the scarf.
