I have never tried on a khaki jacket, because I always thought it would be too masculine or too "militairy" on me.
But then I saw it on Julie from Sincerely Jules and I knew it was something I had to try. I just LOVED her Mara Hoffman jacket (and frankly every outfit she wears, styled to perfection!)
Mara Hoffman Spring 2011 runway collection
MY creation (still under construction..)
I'm still busy embroidering the jacket and as usual it took a while for me to find the perfect way to do it. But eventually it's really easy to do, just find a big kind of yarn and a large needle and try, just try..! ;-)
