This project was for my lovely friend Laura, or rather, her son. He decided on his own that he should be dressed as a magician for his Easter pictures this year. You know, so he could pull the Easter bunny out of a hat. Creative little man, am I right? Laura picked up this suit jacket for a couple bucks at Goodwill:
Step 1: Remove buttons.
Step 2: Get some tailor’s chalk! Or a colored pencil that will show up on your material. I thought it was appropriate that my chalk had a bunny on it.
Step 3: Draw a guideline for cutting. To get the dramatic tailcoat look, I made sure to go up at a slant before going back down.
Step 4: Snippity Snip!
