First, I took an old black jean jacket and cut off the sleeves, the hem, and the collar. This thing was embarassingly old - but it was so comfy that I kept wearing it! Let's just say that the arms were tight - and it's not like we people gain a lot of weight each year in our arms. Yeah, let's skip that math. I adore half jean jacket, half sweatshirt combos. For this piece, though, I joined the jean jacket with a striped sweater. I just adore the collar! :)
From that same sweater, I sewed up this neck scarf. I call it the "easy, under coat scarf" cause you can just slide it on and put your coat over it. It is sewed together at the bottom. The lining is a comfy sweatshirt :) You know - the inside part that is so comfy and soft!
For now, I'm putting these pieces in the corner and heading outside to enjoy the rest of the warm weather!
