As you can tell, this jacket was much too big for Georgia. I mentioned that we could turn it into a vest, and she preferred to keep it as a jacket of some sort. We decided to fit the sides (quite a bit), reset the shoulders to fit her frame, hem the sleeves to 3/4 length, and hem the bottom shorter in front and a little longer in back.
Now she can wear this with a t-shirt and jeans, with a high-waisted skirt and blouse, or over a dress.
Do you have a great handmade piece that you want to update, but want to make sure that it gets the extra care it needs?
