Treadlette Tuesday: Jennifer's Jacket

This embroidered jacket by Jennifer is still a work in progress, but I loved it so much I wanted to share it right now! Jennifer started with a plain, readymade denim jacket and then let loose with embellishments.

Surface decoration is really one of Jennifer's wonderful talents, and she brought embroidery, trims, and beadwork into play here. She intentionally left the area between the gold braids blank for a visual white space. It's easy to overdo embroidery so you have to know when to stop!

The colors and patterns in the embroidery were inspired by a piece of Liberty lawn that Jennifer plans to use to cover the jacket's collar (like so):

Beautiful work, Jennifer!
