What was old is new again…

I think we all have pieces of clothing that we never wear but keep around for some particular reason. This green jacket is case in point. I  never wore it;  it was way too big on me but for some reason it hung around. After 14 years of being idle, I dusted it off and decided to try my hand at transforming an existing piece. My first take at a “what was old IS new again” experiment.

BEFORE

AFTER

The belt front was originally around the wrists.

The back of the belt was originally the collar.

I think it was a success! That green jacket is now back in the front of my closet.
