Refashioned 80's style leather jacket
Kara, our newest Tessuti staff member, has made the funkiest leather skirt out of a leather jacket ( circa 'Thriller'- Michael Jackson period !!!!) that she picked up at St. Vinnies for $5 !!!
Kara simply turned the jacket upside down, using the bottom band of the jacketas the waistband of the skirt (it has a belt that can draw in the waist). She cut just before the very broad shoulders to create the hem of the skirt.
Et voila! A very cool skirt that wouldn't look out of place at fab stores like Pretty Dog in Newtown or Incu in Paddington.
