I have made a lot of changes on my patch vest over the last year. First I removed every patch so that I could sew them back on in a denser pattern. I have collected a lot of patches over the last while, so the total number is now up to 136 bands. I remade the cross on the back out of thicker fabric, and I hand-finished the edge with embroidery floss. I sewed picks I grabbed at concerts to the collar. I took the cuffs off the sleeves of the jacket and attached them to the top of the jacket to make epaulettes, to separate the front from the back and to add more space for future picks. I have been collecting signatures from bands I have met, and have a few in the inside now. It is definitely not done, but I think the progress is looking good. In the inside I added a few zipper pockets, a bottle opener on a retractable line, a pocket for permanent markers, a clip for passes, and a mini Métis sash. Every pocket is still usable (none are sewn shut), and I added zippers to the inside pockets to make them more secure.
