DIY: Button Down to Bomber Jacket

I got a crazy response in regard to this refashioned blouse into a bomber jacket. It's exactly how I did the men's shirt upcycle "Button Down to Bomber" tutorial here.  Full video is here as well...

I actually was going to give this blouse away and before leaving for my "It's Sew Easy TV" taping I whipped it up so I could wear it on set for the episode on "Button Down to Bomber."

It fit me perfect so all I had to do was add the rib knit from Organic Cotton Plus and Coats & Clark 20" zipper.  I will be showing this on "It's Sew Easy TV" in full detail so I'll let  you know when that airs as well.


Below are a few steps of the process, then refer to the video for the rest.

Remove buttons. 

 Remove collar and cuffs.

 Measure the zipper to make sure it will fit with the rib knit and make adjustments accordingly (cut bottom hem, etc.)

Measure the rib knit for the band hem. 

Add band hems on cuffs and bottom hem...
