NEW YEARS, PART 1 - I decided to make my New Years outfit from my vintage recyclable collection. This 100% Wool Pendleton Mills men's leisure suit jacket was just in line for a makeover.
First, I removed the sleeves and cut the bottom and pockets off. The collar was also removed and bias tape put on the seams. With my electric pinking shears I made 2" black velvet trim for the hem, sleeves and collar. I finished off by putting the original leather buttons back on.
