I stumbled upon the Refashioners Challenge right after posting our mini challenge and thought it fit right in. There is more than one thing you can do with a pair of thrifted jeans... and this challenge proves it! This is a way to reuse those super trendy jeans of the past... or the ones deemed too messed up to sell (Joost made a point of asking for some of those jeans for his creative pieces).
Denim is strong, durable fabric that can live on and on, so why not reuse it? Let your creativity run wild or use some of these amazing pieces as inspiration! I love Erin's jacket (above)... and she gives a step by step of how she made it. Portia (below) adapted an existing sewing pattern into an amazingly wearable, warm coat. Joost even made shoes!
