Upcycled Sportswear

I made these for my project which is bades on recycling. I don't really rework the clothing, I try to completely change it and just use the clothing as fabric, which is called upcycling.
The jacket is made from tracksuit bottoms and old leggings. The shorts are from the jacket shown in the photo, the jacket is really old and covered in paint but I love the material and wanted to play with quilted material. I think I may quilt my own fabric, I think it would amazing in velvet for some huge shoulders.
I also really liked the effect that the trackuit material had on the shoulders of the jacket, it made the shoulders really standout and doesn't look like a sportswear material at all.
I will definately be experimenting in more recycled sportswear.
