I thrifted this jacket awhile ago and wore it once or twice. Would have worn it more if it wasn't for the fact that the sleeves are too short for me, a lot shorter than they look in this picture. So I decided to pull out my seam ripper and remove the sleeves. All it took was a quick finishing on the sleeves and lining and I had a new leather vest.
Quick and fairly easy project for a perfect cool weather vest.
