Chain Stitch Jacket

I purchased this black lacy cardigan from NastyGal, a vintage store run by Sophia Amoruso (clearly a boss a with good taste). Nasty Gal has become one of my favorite vintage shops on the web.

This nude bodysuit is from Agent Provocateur. I am a sucker for lacy, dainty lingerie but I found the embroidered pattern on this different from typical lingerie embellishments.

Half of a double breasted jacket muslin with lapels..I shouldn’t have drawn on the muslin but needed to figure out where I’d patch n’ slice my leather.

Here I’m using black leather and a “crocodile” relief leather.

This leather jacket was inspired by Sally from Nightmare before Christmas….here a screenshot from the movie…

Each piece of leather was cut and sewed with chains. You may remember my other chain jacket The chained stitches on this jacket are also a more magnified version of normal sized thread stitches.

You may notice the pendant I’m wearing in the previous photos. The necklace actually came with an order of a Crazylibellule solid perfume sticks that I am liking very much. The scents are inexpensive and I am taking a break from the normal “spray on” perfume routine. These are really easy to apply.
