Reinterpret the beauty of well-worn denim.

While denim frequently becomes a hot fashion trend as it did in spring 2018, it never goes out of style. Here’s a unique, eco-friendly sewing project to turn a couple pairs of jeans into a jacket.

Author Mary Ray shows how she started with two pairs of men’s Levi’s that were well worn and faded. She knew she wanted to make a jacket and considered how to use various parts of the jeans. She let the project evolve by designing as she went along. Her article was first published in Threads #191, June/July 2017. Click on the PDF link below to view the article.
