Style: 35858729 Color Code:
Vintage U.S. Army shirt, hand-embellished with one-of-a-kind Afghan Kuchi tribal patch.
Cute, but Poor Execution
I love the look of this coat, but it has a real problem: the weight of the patch is too much for the thin fabric of the jacket, and it pulls the front up and back in a really uncomfortable and annoying way. I had to keep tugging at it to keep it in the right place, or else it bunched up under my armpits. Lame.
nice idea with the gypsy river
When I saw this jacket I fall in love and can't wait to receive at my home! I was really disappointed when I have wore for the first time and realized that the gypsy river fell aside! The problem is that I'm afraid to sew because of the small ornaments that can fall very easily and get lost! Could you help me FP with this problem :-(

Good idea, poorly made
This is such a cool concept, but the quality isn't there. The vintage " jacket" is more of a shirt. You'll need to really layer under it if you want to stay warm in the fall. Because of the heavy beading it would be difficult to wear something over it. If you live in a warmer climate, or just want something light for the summer this should be fine. The reason I'm returning it though is that the beaded piece is lined with visible, crinkly plastic. Sort-of a garbage bag like material. This is annoying for two reasons: one, it makes a plastic, crinkling sound every time you move and two, it pokes out from underneath the appliqué. It would be visible to anyone who stands behind you. For $200 bucks I don't want to wear parts of a garbage bag on my back. I also found that the appliqué was really heavy. Because of the light-weight jacket material the appliqué kept pulling it down off my shoulders. I only wore it for about 5 min, but had to adjust multiple times. I'm bummed to return this, but plan to make something similar myself with flea market finds.
