A friend of mine regularly goes to the St. Vincent de Paul Society's monthly bag-sales. You get a garbage bag worth of clothes for ten bucks. Which is why I don't go Tongue Anywho, she offered me a jacket that turned out to be too small for her:

As you can see, it is very stylish from the front! But what's with those weird shoulder pleats?!? My shoulders don't slope AT ALL! This jacket is LYING!

So I took out my trusty stitch-ripper and had at those evil lying little shoulder pleats:

AH! Much better! Now I have nicely exagerated square shoulders without an interuption in the line of my bone structure Cheesy Still have to toss it in the wash, as you can see the marks from where the stitches used to be. All in all, not bad for free!

What in the world were the jacket's designers thinking?  LOL

What a wonderful way to save such an otherwise lovely jacket!  I'll have to keep that in mind next time I find a jacket with wonky shoulders on my Smiley

You did a lovely job!
