Jaquitos for Sale!

I recently caught the sewing bug and this is what came of it:

Jacket + t-shirt + unique decorations = jaquito!

I scour the thrift stores for high-quality jackets and interesting t-shirt designs. I wash the items thoroughly, then sew the t-shirt design onto the jacket, and add unique embellishments like patches and custom buttons. 

Here’s a favorite of mine: a red corduroy blazer with sparkly rock star motif on the back. Custom openwork star buttons on front and cuffs.

This jaquito is made of lovely, soft brown corduroy. Flower embroidery on the yoke complements the carefree bicycle image. Spanish text. Butterfly applique on front pocket.

This is a black velvet overshirt with snap buttons. New York City music festival graphic on the back (the roses are sparkly!); butterfly applique on front pocket.
