After all of this buildup (10 blog posts detailing my progress!), I hope you’re not disappointed. I’m not. I love it! Embroidery! Beads! Color! Dye! Quilting! What’s not to love?
So, for those of you who are just joining us, this project is based heavily on a current-season Isabel Marant jacket, the Weez embellished tie-dye quilted denim jacket. Clearly, I am not the only person who is enamoured with this design. The price tag was $4670, and even if you had completely taken leave of your senses and wanted to spend that much on an article of clothing, you can’t have it. It is sold out. Bummer. I was hoping I could take a field trip to Barneys or Saks and see the original. Maybe I’ll take one anyway.
In the remainder of this post, you will find far too many detail photos.
