So yeah I started this jacket back in like the middle or end of May and now I'm here and I just finished today. I'm so excited!!!
Sailor Moon is such an important thing for me because I've loved it since I was little. Usagi is literally my spirit animal (totally obnoxious, loves food, cries a lot) and I have always striven to be just like Sailor Moon, and embody all the strength that ALL the Sailor Senshi have executed.
I started by bleaching the jacket (which I got at a thrift shop near me) and then dying it bright blue on top and purple on the bottom. Then I washed it, added some fabric softener, and then let it dry. Then I embroidered the Sailor Senshi logos on the spots that would go over the buttons, starting with Mercury at the top, then Venus, then Mars, and then Jupiter. Then I started on the ribbon at the top and the text that read 'In the Name of the Moon.' Then I did the bottom ribbon and the text that said 'I Will Punish You!' and then I started on the pearls, then the Crisis Moon Heart Compact, then the Moon Stick, and then the purple ribbon in the background. While doing that, I started adding the pom-poms. It's this trimming I found at Joann's fabrics. I put it around the edges of the sleeves, and then I ripped out the seam in the back above the top ribbon and added it there. My sewing machine worked for the sleeves, but when I went to do the back the needle broke lol. So I did that (reluctantly) by hand. Then I did the heart on the side with the Tuxedo Mask mask inside and the last thing I did today was the lace detail.
I am so so so so proud of this jacket and I am probably never going to take it off. I'm so madly in love with it, and so excited to share it with everyone on the interwebs. PLEASE CHECK OUT MY FACEBOOK PAGE!
