Refashion Month with Knot So Normal


Today I am welcoming Jonie from Knot So Normal, in the series for the first time. We've been taking part in a few tours, and apart from loving refashioning, she also does crochet and anything she's tempted too, my kind of peson then. I actually relate to her in a lot of ways, not only in sewing, we both have a girl and a boy, we sew, upcycle, do crafts with our kids (letting them use their imagination), and more. I love her project for today, and I hope you too.

Hi everyone! I am so excited to be here sharing my refashion with you. Refashion and upcyclying are 2 of my favorite parts of sewing. When I started sewing money was really tight, so I dipped into our closets to make stuff. I am ALWAYS scanning clearance racks for items to turn into a one-of-a-kind clothing piece for myself or my kids. I will admit to being a bit stumped for what I wanted to make for this post, so I started browsing through my collection of clothes to be refashioned and I found this coat. I LOVED this coat when I bought it, but it didn't have the best shape so I knew I wanted to turn it into something else.

Originally I was going to redesign it into a coat for myself, but I am working on the Wardrobe Capsule Challenge by Rebel and Malice and decided to make a jacket for Miss G. After consulting with her she told me she wanted it to be short, warm and have a Halloween Hello Kitty Lining. She also requested one button on it. I think I rocked this one.

 The pattern for this is self-drafted with princess seams on the front and back bodice and a bottom band. I also added inseam pockets because every little girl needs pockets in her jacket.

I am happy to say that this jacket cost next to nothing. The coat was repurposed, the lining fabric was given to me by my aunt, the buttons were in a HUGE box of notions that I picked up at a yard sale for $3.00. I also added a layer of flannel between the main and lining fabric for extra warmth, it cost me next to nothing also. I picked it up at a yard sale for $.10 a few years ago.

 As Miss G is getting older I have been trying to up my sewing game and really make things that she is going to LOVE to wear to school and I think that this jacket totally fits the bill.
