Happy Leap Day! I’m actually not a fan haha. Not to be a Debbie Downer or anything… but who wants an extra day of winter? Not me! On the other hand, it is an extra day to be alive so I’m going to try to be positive today 😉
You’re looking at an OLDIE here. I mean, I’ve had this is my stash for, like, 3 years or more. In fact, I started on this several times (going in a different direction each time), couldn’t make up my mind, and eventually deleted all my during pictures! It was a moment of frustration…. I figured I’d never finish it so, whatever.
Wouldn’t cha know I stumbled upon this a little while ago, had a moment of inspiration, finished it, and was able to locate my “during” pictures in the recycle bin of my computer 🙂
I had plans for the bottom part, originally. This time, though, it was the top part that motivated me.
I love this button closure that went all the way to the waist. I thought this would make a breezy Spring jacket.
I was going to leave the binding at the waist, but it ended up looking kind of awkward so I cut it out and finished the edge with a rolled hem.
This was a refashion YEARS in the making… and it’s a new favorite! Go figure.
It’s been CRAZY windy here lately, but I decided to brave the elements for some outdoor shots any way.
It’s beginning to look a lot like Spring 🙂 🙂 🙂
I love the material of this jacket; so silky and lightweight.
I’m glad I was able to find my photos in my trash bin… Even YEARS after the fact, I guess I shouldn’t be so “quick” to write off a refashion. It helps to take a break and revisit a project with fresh eyes. I can see this being a staple piece for me during the warmer months.
Happy Refashioning. Make the most of your extra day 🙂
