Today's post is going to be a short one. As I work on new projects, I realized that I still have a number of old transformations that I have yet to post. Here's one of 'em!
I found this silver fashion jacket at a thrift store for $1.
|Before: Silver fashion jacket|
|Before: From behind|
The problem was that it had little holes in the back...
...and red marks on the sleeves.
|Out Red Spot!|
But that would be no problem for me!
First, I removed the sleeves.
Next, I cut across the back just above the wide elastic waist.
Then I cut from the underarm up the front toward the collar. I cut out the entire upper back panel, leaving the collar in tact. I sewed some small darts at the side of the bust.
Lastly, I took a lighter and seared the edges around everything I had just cut.
With minimal sewing, a pair of scissors, and a lighter, I had a new look!
Here's what it looked like before:

And here's the simple transformation:
|After: Silver Fashion Vest!|
|After: From behind (in white)|
|After: From behind (in black)|
This little hole and red spot didn't out-smart me!
I hope you liked it :)
Until next time, blessings.
