Denim Jacket

Now don't you love denim jackets? They are so versatile you can dress one up or dress it down. There is a funny thing about denim, it is so durable and classic. It doesn't matter how long you have had that jacket, it might have been your mother's or your grandmother's jacket, it doesn't matter because the older it gets and the more you wash it, the more you love it. I have two jackets now that I have had for a long time, I have put them in the box to go to the Salvation Army so many times but everytime I get ready to go to the SA with the box, I try the jacket on one more time. Then it ends up back in my closet and I wear it for another season.
The jacket in this post is a jacket I made for a special customer (all my customers are special) she wanted me to do something special on the back of the jacket. I was happy with the results. What do you think? I also highlighted the front and collar of the jacket with mudcloth and used some very creative free-motion quilting stitches to finish it off. The diva on the back is embellished with rhinestones and shells. I know that my customer is going to love the attention she will get when she wears this jacket. You will have to enjoy looking at it on this post because it is definitely a one of a kind.
And of course it carries the PJBSW Seal of approval.
