This baby or toddler jacket, in soft blue denim with pretty pink velvet and crème lace accents is made from a pair of cast-offs jeans. Worn denim has a wonderful soft hand-feel and texture that can be re-made into “new” clothes for toddlers, giving the clothes a romantic, charming and very hip look for very little time or budget. I made this as a baby gift and it was inspired by photographs of antique doll’s clothing and my interest to re-cycle and make by hand.
A pair of cast-off jeans – adult size;
4 1/2 yards x 1 3/8” crème cotton lace;
1 1/2 yards x ½” wide pink crushed velvet ribbon;
Thread to match the denim, the lace and also a shade deeper than the denim (I used black, but ochre is another option);
The front, back and front side panel pattern pieces;
