Introducing a new segment: Re-make of the month! You know I’m all about recycling and making things out of recycled & vintage materials, so I will be featuring a monthly project that focuses on just that! The project will either be one of my own, or one from a guest!
This month’s project is a vest I made using BurdaStyle’s Franzi pattern. For the material I used a large wool wrap skirt that I bought at a thrift store ages ago with the intent of using it solely for the fabric. Long vintage wrap or gathered skirts are a great source of fabric for smaller projects. Especially with gathered skirts, once they are deconstructed there is so much fabric in there!
Without further ado, here are the before and afters:
