the second life of a blazer.

Create another item of clothing (a dress, a skirt, a corset, a pair of pants, a vest, etc.) out of a ready-to-wear blazer. This new piece must present the characteristic elements of the blazer by reusing the different pieces without cutting them, taking advantage of the formal characteristics of the blazer. After a careful study of the blazer, create 4 research propositions. Choose the most pertinent design and sew the final piece.

I used the lining of the blazer sleeves to create the bust, with the elbow patches peeking at the neckline. It contrasts nicely against the structured tulip skirt, which keeps the characteristics of the blazer, but shows them off in a different and unconventional fashion.

And here is the final dress, displayed at the Open House :
