Information

^_^'

So, I was going to retire CVX Claire for good, but Chloe / RenDMC very kindly gave me her Claire jacket. It's a lovely red denim/cotton drill jacket with the front detailing embroidered by Chloe. So I got it into my head to embroider the rest to match.

It took me about 3 weeks to do the embroidery on the jacket, then I just alltered the length and width of the jacket to fit me a bit better.
I'll probably wear this when I've got the hair for it again. I'm marking this as finished nonetheless since I've got the jeans, belt and gloves for it ^_^

Embroidery...woo

As you can see, I've been working on this for a couple of days now.
The embroidery hoop is leaving a few stretch marks on the fabric, but I'm hoping that will go away in time.
The Valkyrie's hair is brown becuase I couldn't find a suitable orange-y colour - evrything looked too bright, and I want this to not look bright and happy.
Just got the fire, black inner fire, spearhead and writing left to do.

Jacket prep

After deciding to embroider the jacket, I considered embroidering over the design that Chloe printed and stiched on, using it as a guideline, but didn't want to ruin it. I carefully removed it, and it's in perfectly good condition to be re-used.
After that I took a tracing of the design from my computer - it's the same one I always use, so it's the less tall and narrow valkyrie. It's also a tad bigger than the design from the jacket since I messd up my measurements >_<. I spent ages cutting out each bit and tracing it on, ready to start filling in the colours.
