I found this (too small for me) cute art deco jacket for $2 at a thrift store. It is a large and I wear an extra large. Just for fun, I tried it on...a no-go
So, I'm thinking refashion contest inspiration. I made some slippers that I could make with the fabric. The buttons are neat.

Maybe a hobo bag? Thoughts? Thanks!

My first thought was a fancy clutch for going out. And maybe a belt. Could really accessorize a LBD nicely! :D

What a fun find!

The suggestion of clutch or hobo bag are both excellent.

Not knowing your lifestyle, here are a few other thoughts

Remove the embellishments and add them to another garment in a new design.

Cut the jacket into wide strips of fabric and add to the hem of a full skirt.

Or a fabulously impractical apron! Use the buttons to adorn the waistband.

Can't wait to see what you decide to do.

Didn't Shirley Adams have a feature on remaking art-to-wear garments into handbags in a recent magazine? Maybe Threads?

I think you're on the right track. You may get more than one thing from that piece! (I really like those slippers!)
