The Look for Less

This is my Dolce & Gabbana inspired jacket. I found the vintage sweater while thrifting. 

The roses are made using a wool knit remnant. I just stitched a bias tube and applied the rose using an embroidery stitch. If you are the visual type there is a great tutorial here from Hot Patterns.

I took the roses all the way around the jacket back.

If you noticed the plaid skirt peeking out, it is a vintage re-fashion and I'll post it later.
