17th May 2013: Progress Nails are complete, I'm super happy with them, the stars are so cute! I've been working on the button strips and have done the back one, and almost all of the cuff ones. I've found an old jacket that I haven't worn in years so I'm using it as my base. Once my black thread arrives I'll add the cord detail to the cuffs as pictured and add one of the shoulder pads. Once I've brought more studs I can finish the 2nd one as well as work on the pocket flaps.
I don't want to start making the front panel just yet as the jacket is a bit snug, but I've been losing a lot of inches recently (though I had to stop working out so I dont get too small for sugar rush before expo XD) so I'll fit into it soon. I've also found some old boots that I can add the tassel trim to as well!
