Altered Jean Jackets For The Fancy Flea

 Remember when I did this altered slip and jean jacket post?  Your response was so positive that it inspired me to make more to sell at the Fancy Flea in Plant City, Florida on Saturday.  I so appreciate your input into my projects, I always use your responses as a gauge to see if I am on the right track...Thank you!


I wear the longer jackets.....Now, I'm very conscious of "Dressing my age" but, when I wear these longer jackets I don't feel like I'm an old lady trying to dress like a "Hipster" ......You know what I mean?

Here is some long and short ones I've made to bring to the Fancy Flea


The girls wanted to go outside to get their pictures taken.....No fall colors yet here in Orlando



I like wearing these jackets because they are not "Over the top", I wear mine with black skinny jeans (I'm not skinny, just the jeans are!)


I will also be bringing some altered vintage slip tops to the Flea 


I'm pricing these jackets at $48.00 and will have all sizes S-M-L-XL-XXL-1X   at the Fancy Flea.  I always like to have larger sizes....Just because a person is "Fluffy" doesn't mean they can't wear fun clothes!

Don't forget to come by here on Friday, I am having one whopper of a giveaway for all of my friends that can't make it to the Fancy Flea!

Happy Creating!

  

Carol

They look wonderful! Dianntha

I have honestly never worn a jean jacket. Your lace and pretty add-ons to the jackets would truly make me wear one! I love the ones with the longer lace. So pretty! I like your style. I lol'd about the skinny jean/not being skinny comment. Have a great week! p.s. I'm excited to see what you'll be doing for your giveaway. ~ Jamie

You are so creative. I have many pillow cases from my grandmother that she had crocheted the trim. Now I have so many ideas what to do with them!

Yes so nice ! I buy most part of my clothes on flea markets, and I remodel them just like you do with ruffles and lace and it's so pretty and romantic. In the street I'm always asked where I buy my clothes ! Often girls tell me it's so nice, but I wouldn't dare to wear that (shabby clothes with lace ruffle and hats and always in natural colors, powder pink) It's so important to wear what we like; I agree with you that our clothes must not be too tight (I add like Coco channel and too short when we are more than 40 !) I add also lace and ruffles to velvet jackets and it's so feminine !

Wonderful work again ... I love visiting here

Francie...The Scented Cottage Studio said...

LOVE 'em ! I do wear the shorter ones because I'm short. Always love a little embellishment, esp with vintage laces. And thanks for having sizes for us "fluffies" (())

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Love 'em, Carol! I love the different ways you've done these up. You've got me thinking I'd love to do one of these for myself. I think your price is very reasonable and I'm sure they are all going to sell!

Julia - "Vintage with Laces" said...

Hi Carol, I love all your altered jean jackets. They're fabulous and I'm sure they'll sell like hot cakes.

Sue@House Pretty said...

Those jean jackets are GORGEOUS! By the way, thanks for stopping by and commenting on my post! Home renos. are a slippery slope, indeed!!! Honestly, living with what you have is very smart, financially. I'm sure you wallet will "thank you"! I hope you have a great day!

DownTheLaneWithDaisy said...

You are so on the right track. Those jackets are so cute and unique. I love the term, "fluffy". Cracked me up. I also love that slip top. So sweet.

Kathy said...

Love, love, LOVE the middle jacket in the first picture. Um, YES, you are on the right track!!

pipigirl said...

wow... too cute. you should not have any probs selling those. probably sell out and people will be putting in orders with you. you really are one amazing lady. wish i had 1/4 of your talent.....

shari said...

Carol, I love everything you do and these jackets are just so cute. I love your fluffy comment, I'm fluffy and wish more people thought that way. HA! I wish I lived closer and could attend.

A Paris Flea said...

These are so cute and fun, besides if we went by what we "should" wear...well, we'd all just stay home in our jammies. Thanks for stopping by and visiting my post. happiness...Mickie

Laurie said...

I love them and i think I might try this!

Createology said...

Fancy Flea and you are a match made in heaven. Your style is very Fancy and your prices are very Flea (as in tiny). Love the laces you add to jean jackets and slip tops. Until Friday dear...BREATHE and enjoy.

They are so cute. You're always giving me "ideas!"
I like the fluffy part, I'll remember that one.
I have a give away too you might like if you have time to pop over.

Hi Carol- I love your jackets. I live in So. Calif. and have had jackets like these for 20 years. There is a boutique that specializes in 1 of a kind clothing, but, they are very expensive. Your jackets would sell for 180. dollars. I bought denim jackets at Goodwil or the thrift store and added fancy black lace to it and another other with white and beige. I still wear them.
I think yours are lovely. Best wishes with your sales, Blessings Paula

Nancy said...

These are so cute! Have you sold any at your store yet? I just had my Blog updated so soon I will be posting again, but believe me nothing there will ever be as nice or as interesting as what is seen here!! I am going to start with a Give Away this week end too. But I need to win a Mannequin(hint,hint) until I start making money at the New store then I can buy them and take Orders for you. At least that is the plan. I think you are going to be the Spot to buy at this week end!!

Huggs, Nancy

Cindy said...

Adorable!
Another great project I want to tackle one day.
As one of the 'fluffy' people I appreciate that you make bigger sizes too! Hugs!

lynn said...

carol, these are beyond cute! had to pin them:) (i'm not skinny either:)

Heidi G said...

I think these are absolutely stunning. I'm sure these will be a big hit at the Fancy Flea!!

Celestina Marie said...

Hi Carol, I remember when you first designed these and I think they are incredible. They are going to fly out of the Fancy Flea. You are such a talent!!
Hugs

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Yep! Guess you know I love your altered jean jackets! Mine is still hanging in the closet waiting for me to do something. Should have remembered to buy lace tonight when I was in the material store! Where is my head! I bet they sell well!!! Nancy

Jan Flood said...

Every day a new project, when do you ever sleep? I'm envious of all you seem to accomplish. Sounds like so much fun, wish I was able to come down.

sissie said...

Carol,
These are adorable. I love wearing my jean jacket...it's my fall go to for chilly days here on the coast. Maybe I'll doll mine up a little after seeing yours.

Bet they sell fast.

hugs
Sissie

Betsy@My Salvaged Treasures said...

Wow! They're absolutely stunning and your ladies really wear them well. You'll sell out!!

❁Velma ~Down Our Country Road❁ said...

Adorable! I think I like the ones with the long, vintage trim the best. Very feminine. I'm sure your jackets will be a big hit at the Flea Market. I had to laugh about your 'fluffie' comment as I can so relate to that!

Awesome Needles said...

Carol, I'll just add my kuddos to all the rest! Your jackets are beautiful and will definitely be a big seller at the show. I hope you have a blast and sell out!
BTW, I'm going to start using "fluffy" as my description because it sure beats the alternatives! LOL
Have fun this weekend.

Sue Schuster said...

I just love your altered jean jackets. I also like your comment for big girls as being "fluffy". I'm one of those big girls and I do love to dress in fun clothes too. Thanks for being you.

Annesphamily said...

These are so gorgeous! Love them!

Little Miss Maggie said...

You are so funny. I love that you consider the fluffy folks too. I agree totally. We all need to wear fun clothes, otherwise, what is the point? Young or old, we need to have fun, and now that I know your day at the Fancy Flea could have been more fun, I bet these great jackets will sell at the shop.
