“A funny thing happened with the Steve Madden biker jacket that I’m
What happened with the jacket?
Well, I’m over here in need of medical attention as I’m crouched with arms like a tyrannosaurus rex (see attachment). Lol I found a chocolate slightly distressed biker jacket with a tan colored double stripe across the shoulder areas and down the arms at the thrift store. Well, of course, I wasn’t going to spend 40 or 50 dollars sending it to a leather cleaner, so………..off into a tub of water it goes. Using a sponge and color water wash, I washed the thick lining, the outside and let it drip dry for days in my bathroom. When I removed it from the hanger, it was stiff as a board. I turned it inside out, put it in the dryer this morning thinking the low heat will soften it a little and it did, but not enough. On the way to work, the inner part of my left elbow started to hurt because I was holding my cell phone. It is now a shrunken leather jacket, with shrunken arms in it. I’m afraid to take it off, for fear that I may not be able to get it back on, or from fear that I can’t get it off! I told Chaquita that I will sue Steve Madden for pain and suffering…lol
Plus, I found another old leather jacket in the closet last nite and guess what….off into a tub of water it went….”
It looked exactly how you described it! I love it…T-Rex arms or not.
