When Portia Lawrie of Makery announced that this years #Refashioners2016 challenge was denim, I couldn’t not participate in the community challenge. Between my catalog of my own jeans I’ve made and the wide variety of details collected on my Altered Denim board, it should be clear that when in comes to denim, I’m very serious about thinking beyond a basic pair of jeans. So cutting up existing jeans and making something new? That’s pretty much about the happiest challenge I can think of. That I ended up with this Jeanius Pastel Denim Trench Coat–even better. Who doesn’t love it when a plan comes together just like you want it to?
