I bought this denim jacket from the op shop a couple of months ago. It is by Aussie designer 'Bliss'. I liked the shape and detail on the jacket, but wasn't so keen on the frayed neckline and cuffs. I also prefer full length sleeves, rather than elbow length, on a jacket as I really feel the cold in winter.
This was a very quick fix. The frayed edges were just cut off with scissors close to the seam. Then, I lengthened the sleeves using thick, navy blue knit fabric.
For the sleeves I began with this shape, the top is the right length to attach to the existing cuff, plus seam allowance. Then it tapers down to form the new wrist cuff. Sew left and right sides together.
Place on jacket sleeve matching seams and placing the long edge to the existing cuff.
Stitch together then topstitch.
Finish off the new cuff with a neat hem.
Nice and warm now. Worn here with my ombre dyed Vogue skirt.
If you haven't worn something for a while, have another look at it and see if you can update it with a quick fix. You can see some of my other Quick Fixes here.
