Wendy’s Refashionista Confession

Welcome to another fabulous Refashionista Confession…

Wonderful Wendy of Kitty Gritty Designs was so inspired by my Manly Makeover that she decided to hit the thrift store & create a version for herself!

Here’s what she did:

I like the look of denim jackets but find they feel sort of stiff and clutzy…

So thought, WWSD?? (What would Sheri do?)

I thrifted a very nice Liz Claiborne jacket for $3, and a grubby large sweatshirt for $2.

I was afraid (as this was my first sleeve project) to completely take out the denim sleeves – fearful I couldn’t get the proper fit when stitching together. So, I cheated and left a few inches on the jacket sleeve, cut off the sweatshirt sleeves and made them narrower to fit and sewed them on. Very happy! But then I realized I missed having pockets at the bottom…

so I cut out 2 from the sleeve remnants, added 2 scraps cut from the jacket, and sewed them on (I measured them against my cell phone so it would fit into the pocket).

Whoo hoo! A fabulous result that I am thrilled to have inspired! I’m totally smitten with those two-tone pockets! A huge Danke Schoen to Wendy for sending over her groovy refashion!


If you’ve created an awesome refashion I’d love to help you shout it from the rooftops!
