Refashion Runway - Season Five: Small to Large Reveal

It's time for Round 4 of the Refashion Runway! This round is Small to Large. 



Head over to The Renegade Seamstress and VOTE for your favorite Small to Large project HERE.

For this "Small to Large" challenge I decided to take something short and make it long. I had come across this cropped jean jacket while shopping for the round two challenge and I knew this would be the perfect piece.





I cut the trim and collar off of the jacket (it was all one piece) and cut the collar off of the rest of the trim. I ripped the seams on the jeans and then cut them into five 12" high pieces; front right, front left, back right, back center, and back left. I attached all of the bottom panels and then sewed them to the denim jacket. I then took the waistband from the jeans and attached it to the collar to make a trim and then reattached the collar and the trim the the jacket. I took the remaining portion of of the denim jacket trim and sewed it to the bottom.















While I was planning the jacket I thought it would be nice to add a piece underneath the jacket, so I decided to take a shirt and lengthen it into a dress. My favorite part of this piece is that my son actually picked the two shirts and they ended up matching perfectly to the colors in the floral print denim!


For this dress I took the sleeves off both shirts, but kept the collars in tact. I sewed the armholes closed on the sweater, forming an a-line skirt. I then cut the bottom portion off of the shirt and replaced it with the sweater. I took the bottom portion of the shirt and made the knotted belt for the dress.


Since I've been showing my sketches from the beginning, I figure I might as well share this one too. I think they're pretty similar.




I hope you love this project as much as I do! Don’t forget to head over to The Renegade Seamstress website to VOTE for your favorite Small to Large project!
