Sleeves Cut On My African Jacket!

So I cut the sleeves on the African printed jacket I bought from Thrift Store Baritillo the other day. I had to....they were literally swallowing my frame. : \ I really wanted to keep them, but they just didn't work with my body. Here's the finished product......

I tucked the shoulder pads under the sleeve part....


You can see the shoulder pad on the right poking out. :o

And here the shoulder pads are all out willie nillie....lol.


I don't know what I'm going to do with the should pads. I may cut them....or sew them under to make a cute little puff. Any ideas? -K.D.

P.S. I went to Thrift Store Baritillo today....yes again. ;-) Can't wait to show you the new finds!
