Dry Cleaning Disaster = DIY Project?

Thursday, April 09, 2009

It's hard to see in these photos, but the dry cleaner near my apartment ruined a favorite jacket. Somehow they managed to bleach a portion of this jacket (and yet, they didn't manage to get out any of the spots). Rage at the dry cleaner aside, I was thinking it might be an opportunity for a DIY project.

Can you see how it's bleached? It's both on the lapel and the front of the jacket (and the back of the lapel).

A while back I saw this amazing homemade version of a jacket from J. Crew. I'm thinking maybe I could transform my own jacket with a bunch of fabric flowers. Here's the description of how the copycat jacket was made. What do you think? Worth a try?
