I found this ugly jacket from my mom's room and it was a size 12, so I don't know why my mom even had it because it's definitely not her size.

I had to use a male mannequin because the jacket was so big
Originally I wanted to make a trenchcoat out of it but it wasn't long enough.

One day I was on the Subway and saw an ad for the Ringling Brothers. So I thought it would be really cool to reconstruct this jacket into a ringmaster-esque tailcoat: So I took off the sleeves and buttons and put a zipper on it. I cut it up and sewed it back together.

I was really fustrated with it because I had to take it apart and put it back together only to take it apart once again. And it was lined with this crappy nylon material so I had to rip that all out

I think it came out really awesome, I just need to touch it up a little because I was up late trying to finish it.




I thought it would be really cool to line the collar with zippers




The tail

I thought it would look nicer with my self-made tutu:




Tell me what you think!
