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.
