When I started making this jacket I discovered a lot of people loved this movie as much as I did. I was a huge Madonna fan when I was little, and still am. While the movie isn’t exactly Oscar material, it was entertaining and really embodied Madonna’s unique 80s style. The stand-out piece in the costume wardrobe was that jacket, reportedly owned by Jimi Hendrix…or was it Elvis? Either way, we all wanted one. And now you can have your very own Desperately Seeking Susan jacket!
Jackets are currently available through my website in sizes XS-3X! Click here to get one for yourself.
Desperately Seeking Susan jacket
1) Is this an exact replica?
No. These are handmade and I would consider them more like “artistic interpretations.” This is not a manufactured copy. Please don’t ask me to make an exact replica- what you see is what I make.
2) Do you take custom requests?
Only for sizing. I can do a custom size, but it is $50 extra because I have to draft an entirely new pattern before making it.
3) How often do you make them?
I try to keep them made and ready now!
4) Where can I buy one?
On my website at: http://3musesboutique.com/collections/three-muses-costumes/products/desperately-seeking-susan-jacket-deluxe
5) How much do they cost?
The deluxe version with fabric embellishments and sequins is $225 and the standard heat-press version is $150
6) Is the back design embroidered?
No. The current design is a mix of fabric paint, sequins and satin fabric. Everything is done by hand, with no patterns or stencils.
7) What is the difference between Deluxe and the regular jacket?
Both jackets themselves are the same- the difference is in the back design. The standard jacket is a heat-press design with glitter accents. The deluxe is closer to the original and uses red satin fabric for the banner, hand painted text, gold sequins and gold glitter details.
8) What sizes do they come in?
9) What color are they?
Same as the real deal- olive green
10) How do I clean the jacket?
Due to painting and embellishments, I do not recommend dry-cleaning. Try to spot clean and Febreeze. If you must wash, they are best cleaned by hand washing in cold water. You can soak them in soapy water or Woolite, rinse and then hang to dry.
