First Refashion/MAGAM for 2015

I can't believe it's almost the end of January already! I haven't done much sewing this month, except the odd mending/repairs. Things have been really busy/hectic: kids getting sick, etc.

I had been given a few pairs of large men's jeans by hubby in different colours. I thought why not make them into little cropped jackets that I can wear in the Spring and Autumn with layering? The jacket pattern on Simplicity 1688 seemed perfect for small scraps of fabric. I'm hoping that 1 pair of jeans will be enough for this jacket if I make it into a cap sleeve jacket.

Let's see if I am able to finish it before the end of January!


  1. I was wondering about you only this morning and hoping all was okay. Sorry to hear the kids were sick, I hope they are all better now.

    I can't wait to see how this jacket turns out - gorgeous, I bet.

    1. Thanks Sarah Liz! The kids are fine now - nothing serious anyway. I am just happy that I have time to sew again!
