Time to recycle!

Re-using old clothes is one of my favorite things to do. Probably because I have a hard time throwing away stuff. Now, I had this black vest hanging in my closet for quite some time.

I’d bought it at a thrift shop a decade ago and hardly ever wore it, because I never really knew when to wear it. Too cold for winter, too hot for summer and just feeling awkward with it in spring and autumn. Never threw it away though, thinking ‘one day I might re-use the two way zipper’.

I also had this cute dress that my mom made me when I was like ten or so (exhibit #1: I REALLY have a hard time throwing stuff away!).

Because I loved the fabric so much, I’d passed the dress on to my daughters. But now they’ve also grown out of it.

Then I had a little lightbulb moment: why not combine the two!

So I’ve cut two sleeves from the dress, attached knit cuffs and sewn the sleeves into the vest. What do you think of my ‘new’ jacket?
