Retro Restyle: a Navy jacket

Fresh off the sewing machine is a restyled Navy uniform top.  I found this at the local thrift and it’s riddled with moth holes.  I didn’t want to toss it away so decided to do a make-over.  I split the center front, added a zipper and did a bit of embellishing.  More details at my blog.

Shepherdess, retro-housewife, mother, seamstress... but labels can be deceiving. I also play the sax, butcher chickens and sing in the church choir. I raise sheep and bale hay. I sew from Grandma's patterns and drive a 1950 Ford Shoebox. Life at the Willow Homestead is retro right down to the 1947 Frigidaire!

I’m so sorry to be the one to post this, but the cuteness of your top is almost being upstaged by the super adorableness of that dog!

LOL @ Abby!

Your dog looks just like the one my BFF had as a child! He was Great Pyrenees and something else. :)

The top is cute, but I think your dog is stealing the show! LOL Or is that a very hairy pony? I’m not really sure.. ;)

I love up-cycled or re-purposed clothes. This one is one of the best I’ve seen. Thanks for sharing.
