For the past couple of years the sewing industry has been recycling everything - we've been doing the jeans into purses for ages now. The new twist for the last few years is Men's Jackets.
The fashion industry is a knock-off world, we get an itch to do our own. It was so much easier than I thought. I've had this Jacket hanging on my to do pile for some time. (my To Do sewing stuff hangs on my walls).
I took the easy route I opened up the jacket and placed my pattern pieces right on it, pinned them and cut out the fabric and my lining pieces all at once. It went just as fast as cutting out regular fabric.
I incorporated a pocket into my back pocket piece:
Give it a try with any pattern that you have, it's so easy!
I added it to Made by you Monday - I hope there is no rule about adding older posts - If there is please tell me?
