UPCYCLING…It’s a lifestyle
FRIDAY FLIP: FROM JACKET TO APRON!
I always appreciate any time I get in the studio to sew for myself as its always a busy place teaching others.I was in need of a new work apron for a while and when my partner donated 2 linen jackets I used them to fashion a new apron.
I always wear an apron in the studio as it protects my clothes from dust, threads, and leaning up against the cutting tables.
This flip took around 2 hours. It has 2 pockets on the outside and 1 secret one inside.
I turned the jacket sleeves into a waistband and re-sewed the cuff buttons with contrast thread. The red and navy hanging loop was made by a necktie.
HAS THIS INSPIRED YOU TO START UPCYCLING?
