Next, to complete this look and really make the jacket seem like a varsity-style jacket decorate the final piece. Using things like iron on decals, paints or patches really makes your piece come to life. This is a fun part to add a personal touch to your look.

On my piece, I drew a digital drawing of a retro Super Mario style mushroom on adobe illustrator and cut the design out using iron-on vinyl sheets at my circuit machine.

But this is again your area to shine so adding your own unique personal touches to this piece is best. Think of the best places of your jacket to decorate like the tops of the sleeves and chest area; or if you don’t have a big logo on the back as I do then the back is a great place to add a personal touch or two as well!
