Altering a Men’s Suit Jacket to Women’s
I tripped through a thrift store while on vacation and picked up a beautifully detailed, tailored wool men’s sport coat. (Hong Kong address for the tailor.) In J. Crew catalogs, fashion magazines, I see that the “Boyfriend jacket” is back, and so …
I am looking for advice, suggestions, thoughts on making the jacket more feminine, adding embellishment. Do I have to take the jacket apart and do some fitting? do I make some Kenneth King fabric flowers? change the buttons? Add wide lace? The jacket is a dark grey pinstripe.
If you’ve ever modified a garment, what changes had the biggest bang-for-your-time, wear factor pay-off?
I appreciate any suggestions, ideas, thoughts.
