This is my entry for The Refashioners 2016 organized by Portia from the blog Makery. The whole point of the competition is to refashion one old pair of jeans and I have seen a lot if amazing projects already around.
This was my starting point, thanks to husband :)
And this is the result. The inspiration came from all the bloggers that participate to The refashioners, as well as from Pinterest
I have decided to use as base the Trophy Jacket by CaliFayeCollection. This jacket is a tailored cropped jacket for little girls. I have already made it, so I knew it was a perfect fit. This time I have made the version with zipper and, thanks to the suggestion of some other bloggers, to leave out the sleeves and make a vest. Size is 5 years, no modification.
The main fabric is coming from the jeans, I have used almost all of them, because initially I have cut also the sleeves. The lining is some quilting cotton from Ikea. And of course some cotton thread for embroidery.
