Denim experiments with minimal cut and zero waste – Design 4: SKIRT AND BOLERO

This final design used the same pieces as used in design 3 (with no additional cuts). I used the same skirt from design 3). In this design I used the seat of the jeans to create a bolero inspired jacket. The original fly front of the jeans was opened up to create a rolled collar The excess fabric at the front arm hole would need bar tacks to secure the tucks at intervals.

I liked the overall shape of the bolero, but the bulk at the front armhole would make this look ugly and bulky to wear.
