Recycled Denim Vest

Recycled Denim Vest

Carrie had such fun creating this recycled denim vest from 3 pairs of old jeans her husband was preparing to throw out!  It features the new Jean Jacket Variations details – classic collar, front breast pockets with flaps, and hem band with tabs in the back.  Note that the recycled jean’s back pockets create front pockets on the vest.  Carrie chose classic orange jean top stitching thread to match the top stitching carried over from the jeans. The buttons are also recycled cedar from Favour Valley Woodworking, which will darken with age.  Watch for a blog post in the near future with more photos of Carrie’s process for cutting the vest pieces and details out of the used jeans.
