This jacket is the result of many months of handwork, and it shows.
A luxury garment that can't be replicated.
At home on stage, at the rodeo, a night at the opera, or a night in the clubs...
The framework is a classic vintage Levis jeans jacket with a mellow natural patina.
The collar, lapel pieces and yoke are from a single suite of fine antique Belgian lace, Victorian Era.
The lace has been loaded with sequins in aurora borealis, dusty rose, and gold; each seperately hand stiched and anchored with a pearly bead.
The antique-gold-colored piping is Victorian Era upholstery trimming.
Lined with satiny fabric in coordinating colors of pearly blue, pink, teal, and silver, secured with visible fun and funky golden embroidery floss stitches.
Shoulder pads under the lining give the jacket structure and stability.
This is a garment that looks delicate but is built like a tank and made to be worn without worry.
The feeling of the weight of the beads on your shoulders is amazing and indescribable...the garment sits beautifully yet moves with you.
This jacket looks smashing with jeans, velvet, lace or a white shirt, and works easily as a formal, casually luxurious, or statement piece depending on how you choose to wear it.
