My sister's black and white jacket

Altering clothing doesn't have to be hard.  Sometimes the simplest changes can transform a garment from a bench warmer to a starting player.  (A sports metaphor - where in the world did that come from?)  

My sister's beautiful jacket from White House/Black Market had a covered hidden snap that was placed right over the beautiful embroidery.  It was totally functional but didn't enhance the jacket at all, in fact it kind of messed up the symmetry of the front.

Solution:  Sew on a basic frog clasp.  The nice black trim accents the embroidery and both jacket edges are clearly visible. 

Notice the rough frayed edges  - very cool detail!
