My sister Kristen (first of all, isn't she gorgeous?) recently fell for J.Crew's Astrid cascading flowers jacket - but knew she could create a similarly beautiful piece without the $425 price tag.
Using strips of satin, Kristen made all the flowers by hand and sewed them onto a $35 jacket from Old Navy. Here is Kristen on the left and the jacket that inspired it, pictured right. Personally, I prefer her version!
The project did take quite a bit of time, which is unfortunate because now I want one for myself and have to find some way to convince her to make it for me! I simply can't get this fabulous jacket out of my head...and I'm ever proud of my sister's many talents.
