I took an old jacket of mine that was too big and not flattering and turned it into a denim unit if u will

I cropped the jocket and did a corset thing in the back and used the hem of t shirt sleeves to add to the bottom of the jacket sleeves and that was that





the skirt i simply used the same t shirt and used it to make a waisteband that was also that. it has a drawstring waiste that ties in the back



feedback would be greatly appreciated.  Also what can i do to keep the jacket from bunching at the top above the corset.  Thanks for looking

love it! wish id done htis with my old denim jacket instead of giving it away... As for the top of it, i think it looks fine personally but you COULD try sewing some darts in, though on denim that might not be easy. Good job!

I shortened a jacket into a shrug, although I didn't do the corset thing (wish I had) and I put them just about on the inner ridge of my shoulder blades (about 1.5" on either side of my spine) at a level just about where your top lacing is.  I did a lot of trial and error with pins and a hand mirror before I got it to lay where I wanted to.  Although I kind of like the folds in the back on yours!
