I’m a little later than I wanted to be in posting this week’s refashion tonight. Travis’ pdaNet quit working. So we had to go find Wi-Fi to post.
This week has been pretty chaotic, and yet, I bit off a huge chunk of a challenge! (Almost too ambitious for this week!)
And here it is:
My new leather jacket! And it was refashioned from this:
Forgive the crappy jacket picture. The pile was photographed in the daylight, and the jacket was at night. I don’t know why part is absorbing the light and part is reflecting it. Maybe it is the way I have my arms. I saw a jacket in a magazine that was one of those “not supposed to close” kinds, and I loved it. However, I’m not as excited about my version. I have more leather left, so I will probably be RE-refashioning this one. I think I like how the cuffs tie. I might keep that.
Overall: Not bad for an experimental pattern used on leather that used to be a COUCH! (The title makes more sense now, huh? LOL)
The leather cost me nothing since it was given to me some time ago by a friend of mine whom repairs furniture. Therefore, my $260 for the year has remained untouched!
