DIY classic simple jacket refashion

Can you feel it in the air?? Winter is coming. This means boots, jackets, scarves and all the beautiful winter fashion is coming too, for a whole like… 2 weeks (Go Brisbane!!) YAY!

So this week, we’re talking jackets and this one in particular is an up-cycle from a hand me down (from my lovely Mumsy!). She gave me this jacket a little while ago (last winter?) and remember at the time thinking ‘hmmm no, this isn’t me..’ and put it in my pile to go to Vinnies…

Then one day I found myself wanting to look at it again so I went rummaging and luckily I still had it. I decided I totally LOVED it. I put it on and the sleeve length was little awkward – but that’s pretty much the fashion now (I realised I have the exact same awkward length sleeves in another favorite jacket). I was even more stoked when I I realised it is 30% wool and beautifully tailored!

The reason why I chop and change my clothes so much is because I tire of them quickly, however, I refuse to run to the shops every time I bore – so out come the scissors. Instead of chopping – this week I added a little splash of color to the pockets!

You can change the look of a jacket with the smallest piece of material, it’s so easy and can be changed as often as you like.
