On this same jean jacket from the late 80's, before the winged heart, I had another embroidery. It was a beautiful crow, its wings spread wide. All satin stitch and very realisitic. I embroidered it onto a circle and then appliqued it onto the jacket. I took off later and gave that beautiful embroidery away to a dear friend who reused it for her sacred pipe, so I can't complain (though I would like to, just a little bit. I would not have the patience to embroider it again.)
While I am at it, I will show you the entire jacket. I would love some suggestions for it. I used to love that 80's oversized look, now it just seems two sizes too big. What should I do with it?
Sorry about my smirk. I never know what expression to have while waiting for my camera to go off. I should just cut off my head in these photos.
You can see how oversized the jacket is.It is a bit better from the back. The sleeves are too long as well. It looks like I am wearing a man's jacket. Very unflattering. I never wear it anymore.
I no longer like the ribbons anymore. I could take them and the tiny hearts off. But what would I do with it? Come on, throw out any thoughts, doesn't matter how wild. We will do some creative brain-tanking. Brain-mashing. What do you call it?
