Month of Makeovers Day 27: A craftsman remakes a worn out jacket

When we came up with the idea for this Month of Makeovers I knew I had a perfect project to delegate to a real craftsman. We met Jared DeSimio, Maker at the Vintage Bazaar in June. He had an impressive display of totes and bags he had made in his workshop in Brunswick, Maine. I thought of him when I was trying to decide what to do with this battered jacket that used to belong to my father. The sleeves were worn so badly it couldn’t be donated; it would have to go in the trash. Or get remade.
