Refashion for the man in my life

This time my refashion was for my husband. A few years ago when we where in Tamworth for the country music festival he bought himself a jeans shirt/jacket with short sleeves. He never wore it since it was to thick for a shirt sleeve and bit to large as well. The solution was to make it more into a jacket. I bought a smallish piece of matching material, and made long sleeves  with cuffs after another shirt. I also covered the placket  and the button facing. It was also to big over the shoulders and I had to take it in by about 3 cm each side. Then finally I had to shortened it by ca 10cm and fashioned a rounded hem. 
The result, a much loved western style shirt/jacket.
