I shared this project on instagram earlier this year, but wanted to document it here as well. This was one of our class projects for my fashion design and sewing class. I asked students to bring in old jeans or jackets to replace certain panels with lace. For this project I used an upcycled gifted corduroy jacket from my friend Delmara. I thought the almost square shape would be easiest to replace so I cut out that to start.
you can see the stitching here it's the white thread on the inside of the original trim.
Here's what it looks like on but I think it would obviously showcase better with an open back dress.
And here's a peek at the process from my instagram reels.
What should I upcycle next?
