I made this jacket out of a few jeans and skirts I picked up cheap and basically ripped them into strips.  Then sewed them to some black cotton cut to the shape of the jacket.   I was originally going to do the sleeves the same but it took so long that I didn't in the end.  It turned out well and I even managed to keep the front pockets.

Oh yes, I could certainly see myself wearing that  Cool. I think it's probably better with the sleeves as they are. Great work!

I wasn't sure I liked it from the hanger picture, but it looks great on!

Wow that's great, it's easy to go the cheesy route when refashioning jeans/denim but this look is really fresh and original, I love it!

I prefer the sleeves as they are too as with wear they would have ended up looking a little dishevelled because of all the raw edges,  I think you made the right choice for sure.

Thanks, yeah I'm glad I didn't do the sleeves it would have been too much of the same thing as well  Smiley
