DIY Thrift Flip 1- Refashioning Thrifted Clothes (slovenské titulky)

Hi guys. In this video I will show you how I transformed some thrifted clothes. I bought this jacket because I like the
shape but I didn’t like the sleeves and the collar. So I decided to replace them. I seam ripped off the sleeves including the lining. I pulled out the lacing. I opened up the sleeve along that seam. I pinned the two layers together and I cut off the eyelets blending the cut into the edge. This way I also narrowed the bottom of
the sleeve. I separated the lining from the main fabric. Then I opened up the other seam. I placed both pieces on the paper and traced them. I seam ripped off the other sleeve. I did the same thing that I did to the
previous sleeve. I bought this suede dress for the new
sleeves. I was lucky because the fabric wasn’t stretchy. I opened up the side
seams. I cut one large piece out of the backside. I couldn’t fit the other piece to the backside so I had to cut it out of the front side. There were these fake
pockets that I first removed. I seam ripped it along these lines. I removed the pocket and sewed one half of the dress back together. I pinned and cut out one more larger piece. I made sure that it was mirrored to the previous piece and that the middle seam was at the same place. Then I cut two smaller pieces and again I made sure that the seam was at the same place. I sewed the sleeves together. I also sewed the lining sleeves together. Right sides together I inserted the
sleeve into the lining and pinned it together. I sewed it all around. Same thing with the other sleeve. I turned it to the right side and pushed the lining into the sleeve. I pinned it together along the top edge and pushed the main fabric a little bit inside. Then I gave it a good press. I then inserted the sleeve into the armhole and pinned together the main fabric. I sewed the sleeve all around. I ironed the edge of the lining sleeve to
the wrong side. Then I pinned the lining sleeve to the lining. I sewed it all around close to the edge. This is what it looked like. I seam ripped the outside layer of the
collar off. I placed it on the paper and traced it. I cut it out of the dress. I cut out also interfacing. I ironed it on. I ironed the bottom edge of the collar inside. Right sides together I pinned it to the other collar piece. I sewed it together. I cut off the corners
and turned it to the right side. Then I placed the ironed edge over the raw edge of the lining and sewed it down. So this is the result. Next I will be adjusting these mens
pants. First I seam ripped the waistband and
took out the elastic. The zippers of the pockets were broken so I decided to take them out. I decided to make my own pockets. This is the fabric with the closest color that I had so I used it. I cut this pocket pattern four times. I pinned two pieces to the front side. I sewed it down leaving 2,5 cm at the bottom and top. Then I snipped the fabric at the bottom and top of the seam. I flipped the pockets inside and pressed
them. I also top stitched the edges. Then I sewed the pockets together. The side seams of the pants were moved a bit to the front which means that I had this huge backside left. I pinned one pant leg in place and I separated the front side of the backside narrowing it a little bit. With some marker I narrowed the back side. Then I separated the other pant leg. I narrowed the front side to be the same as the other front side. I also narrowed the back side. I pinned the side seams and sewed them down. Then I cut off the excess fabric. I used the original elastic. I sewed the ends together . I folded the edge of the pants over it and sewed it all around stretching it while sewing. Then I folded the elastic inside and sewed three rows of stitches all around. I narrowed the pant legs even more and I
also shortened it a little bit. I cut some elastic around my ankles. I hemmed the bottom of the pants so that elastic would fit into it. I sewed the hem and left a space to fit
the elastic through. I inserted the elastic, sewed the ends together and sewed the gap closed. So these are the final pants. Thank you guys for watching and I will see you soon. Bye.
