Economical? Maybe not.
Talk to a masonry contractor to assess what is involved. You may need a
veneer footing or support, and a lot of anchors installed for the new
brick. Will the added proportions of the modified chimney look right
with the house?
Consider painting the current brick as well, get an estimate. Compare
both and decide what you like best. Good luck.
