Next up for The Refashioners 2018 is Allie with this covetable and supremely wearable leather jacket!
Refashioned from a thrifted oversized leather jacket from the 90s and a floor-length ponte maxi dress. Just wait until you see the before pic of the dress.
The only supplies not repurposed for this project were thread and Wonder Tape.
Princess seams have proved time and again to be a refashioners friend due to the way the garment is broken down into much smaller pattern pieces. Perfect when you are playing fabric tetris with existing garments!
If you would like more details on this refashion, including the inspiration image and starting garments head over to Allie’s post here.
