So i made my first jacket a while ago but i just recently took pics of it. The bright crazy fabric is actually from a awesome skirt that i found at goodwill i bought it because i loved the pattern but it was quite unflattering as a skirt so now its part of my jacket. The solid purple sleeves and lining is from a sheet i had when i was little. the black fabric is from a knit shirt that i had. so it is all recycled materials! (except for the zipper)
 Smiley i was pretty pleased with it turned out, its one of the only sewing projects i've done that i have liked enough to wear out of the house haha


i accidently made the hood to small, so i added fabric and now its way to big, but i was to lazy to change it again.  Cheesy

I think it's very cute! Maybe wear a scarf in the hoodie and nobody will notice that it's a bit big. I love that it's made from recycled stuff. You can impress a lot of people with that  Cheesy

We all make mistakes, and then when you've made enough, they call it experience.
