This jacket was made using a navy sweatshirt and two men's ties. I cut off all the ribbing to give the sweatshirt a different shape - looser and less sporty. I inserted one tie at the centre back with the large point at the bottom of the jacket. This gave the jacket a bit of flare. The sleeves are trimmed with the left over pieces of the first tie. Another tie is pleated and draped round the neck to form a collar. For this I used the whole tie.
This jacket was a Christmas present for my sister.
