Wacky Jacket updates

My jacket is almost done being modified… Phoenix patch is done and has been sewn on to the back… I have also added shoulder pads and made a few structural alterations to the body and sleeves; it now more resembles a 1940s style jacket. There is a very special occasion that I am planning a Steampunk/Dieselpunk ensemble for, and the jacket will be prominently featured! I will reveal the secret and post complete pics very soon… Stay tuned!
