Bella’s Plaid Cropped Jacket

Hey everyone!

A couple of you guys had noticed me wearing an alternative to Bella’s plaid cropped jacket in a recent video i posted for the “Best dressed Bella competition”

You asked where I got it and I am here to answer!

Way back around June or July I posted a link to a website where they advertised “Bella’s Plaid Hoodie”


I figure if i bought it, the print is pretty good though not identical – i could totally alter it myself πŸ™‚

A lot of people don’t realize that the back of Bella’s jacket is slightly pleated (either pleated or there is an elastic inserted Β in the middle of the back)

I got rid of the zipper, made sure to crop the jacket to my preferred length (along with the sleeves), and add pleats (though you can add the elastic instead) it was pretty easy and didn’t take me long at all πŸ™‚ – here are some pictures of it πŸ™‚

(some pleats)

Cropped sleeves

Whats great about cropping this jacket is you don’t have to take it in any to make it fit properly – Bella’s jacket if very loose and almost bulky in a sense.

If you decide to order and crop the jacket, a few things you should know and come to expect.

There are options for you to get certain things embroidered – you can if you want, but there is also an option to leave it blank.

They DO embroider their logo (quite large) on the back of the hoodie – luckily it is so low you should be able to crop the whole logo out.

I’m usually a small when it comes to sizing, but i bought a medium so it was a little bit looser looking, and it fits exactly how it should! πŸ™‚

(Please ignore my face! – no make up + trying really hard not to shiver = awkward serious face! Β – it was about 25 degrees when i took this 😦 😦

Let me know if any of you have questions about this top! πŸ™‚Β
