Deep Pink Slash Jacket

Article Image

This is similar to a jacket that was featured in a magazine in 2001.  I loved it and wanted one like it so using a jacket I had that fit, I made a pattern.  It took five layers of 100% cotton fabric to make this jacket.  Sewing together the basic pieces, fronts, back and sleeves, leaving many of the edges raw to give it the look I wanted, I then stitched in key areas a grid of 1 inch squares and then slashed an “x” in each square.  then I threw it in the washer and dryer to bloom all the areas that were slashed.  I had added iron on graphics and unfortunately some came undone in the wash and had to be redone after the wash/dry process.  This was a very time consuming project but it is a really fun jacket.
