Madewell Inspired Distressed Denim Jacket Refashion




This refashion was inspired by this  Madewell Distressed Denim Jacket. (It's on sale right now!) My mom bought it about a month ago, and I ended up really liking it. I had a denim jacket that I wanted to update and make trendier. I've had this jacket since my senior year of high school and it was my favorite denim jacket. It just needed a little sprinkling of refashion magic to be a closet favorite again. :)

 I am currently loving any distressed denim, and that was actually my favorite part of this refashion. When I attended FIDM, I attended some denim workshops and I got to learn all sorts of ways to distress denim. For this refashion, I just simply cut the denim and tugged and pulled at it to distress it. 



STEPS


1. I cut off the collar first.


2. Then, I tugged at it and pulled the threads to distress it. There was some interfacing (the white stuff inside the collar) in the collar, that I simply cut out. 


3. To make the front yoke pieces, I traced the shape over some paper.


4. I cut out the front yoke pieces and left about 1/4"-1/2" left to be able to sew the new yoke pieces.


Here's a close up. I also tugged at and pulled the threads so it would have that distressed look.


5. I pinned the new yoke pieces as shown, and sewed them on.


6. Next, I cut out the back yoke piece, once again leaving anywhere from 1/4"-1/2" trim in order to sew the new yoke. 


7. I sewed three pieces of denim together (sewn at the pink dots) to make the new back yoke piece. Then, I pinned and sewed on the new yoke.


8. Since this jacket was fitted and I was going for a less fitted look, I cut open two back seams as shown.


9. I cut out two denim panels to insert into the jacket.


10. First, I hemmed the two panel pieces (as shown by the pink arrow). Then, I pinned and sewed the panels on.


11. Lastly, I just chopped off a little piece of the hem, tugged at it to distress it, and done!


TA DA!
