Obligatory Backstory:

Some of the moms from my DS's school got together for a crafting night. During the course of the evening, it was mentioned that our school's principal (who, funny enough, went to school with my husband) thought it would be hilarious to have a suit made from the plaid uniforms. I said, "let's do it!"

They got me some old uniforms (it took 4 pairs of pants and 2 jumpers), and I did the rest. My SIL did embroider an inside pocket with the principal's name, school name, and year...but, for sake of privacy, I won't share it here.

It had been a while since I had last made anything similar, and I have never done such finicky pockets, so I made a mock-up first. Maybe I'll have all the kids sign it for him next school year. Grin

Working with that polyester plaid was a dream. It's really great fabric.

We presented the principal with the jacket the last week of school, in front of the whole school. He absolutely loved it! So did the kids and other parents - I even got a request for a uniform-plaid kilt. Cheesy At first, he didn't understand that I had made it from old uniforms - he thought we had bought it for him. Now, he says he's going to wear it everywhere.  Cheesy
