When we talk about sustainable fashion, versatility comes up again and again. How can we buy less clothing? How can we need less clothing (other than by joining a nudist colony?). One option is to own garments that can can be worn in multiple ways.
That’s just one reason why I dig this refash by Cathi from .
She began with an old flannel that used to belong to her dad.
The original flannel shirt was an XL men’s, so way too big for me. I removed the sleeves and collar; took in the torso; shortened the whole thing; adjusted the shoulders from mens to womens; added some “darts” to the bust; added pockets; and finished with bias tape. It’s my best refashion so far :)
I LOVE how she made this piece reversible! The black is a perfect neutral, and the red plaid is totally on-trend. Combined, she basically has two great vests that will last for years to come!
