I love a good Boy Meets Girl look. For this project, I reworked an old 1940s Eisenhower jacket Size 40 chest into a Size 4 cropped jacket. You can see more photos at www.reluxia.com

I love cutting into old vintage clothes and admiring all the hand stitching and layers of facings. Wool is also one of my fav fabrics to work with as it's so malleable. It's sculptural when combined with a good steam iron. For the best trim selection in my area, I ferreted through Britex fabrics until I found the right combo of trims: velvet, grosgrain, and just a little shine.

Technique Materials

Vintage Army Jacket, grograin ribbon, buttons, velvet ribbons, BIG scissors

    Wow this looks really impressive. I really would like to try out this style. Can’t wait to get home from work. Let’s see how much I can improvise it. I shall post a picture when I am done with something nice.
