Coats & Jackets Refashioning Ideas



In the past several decades, fast consumerism has had a devouring and devastating effect in fashion, overflowing landfills to the brim. Being a sworn refashionist with a green mind and a huge penchant for vintage, I always love to step back and give new life to any clothes worth saving and prologn their wearable age. 

I am proud to say I have a closet filled with vintage clothes from both my grandmas and mom, which with a little twist and a pinch of a creative genius have turned into heirloom pieces. So, today I am sharing several ideas how you can turn old coats and jackets into unique art pieces. The following show the work of many talented people that used fabric, lace and embroidery floss to applique and embroider old coats and jackets into wondrous creations. All due credits are given in my pinterest board here. Check it out for even more seducing and enchanting ideas.

I am always on  the lookout for a new, old jacket to tart up or as the world say, upcycle. The possibilities are limitless, aren't they.

Your creations are amazing! And I don't use that word lightly. I would not have thought to embellish coats and jackets like this. Fabulous!

These ideas are absolutely fabulous! I really appreciate the push towards upcycling rather than disposing. Pinning!
