This custom WW2 United States Navy coveralls is an original art piece. I found this beautiful United States Navy coveralls in the thrift shop. But to make it more interesting, I first applied the Felix the Cat stencil on the back. Second, I hand painted a Felix the cat/VF3 leather patch and sewed it in the front. Finally, I aged both designs by using sand paper.
This custom WW2 US Navy Coveralls has a few holes on the top of the right pocket (please check the pictures). Otherwise it’s in great condition. If you want to look cool in a unique military vintage style coveralls, this is the piece to pick!
The coveralls was made in 1998 (number available on the tag, please check pictures)
Painting Method for the Coveralls
I do hand paint everything myself. It does take many hours to research, draw, paint and heat press the design on the fabric. Moreover, for inspiration, I constantly study soldiers’ paintings on duffel bags and leather jackets. They are a great source of inspiration.
First, I do spend many hours on these unique coveralls and I do all the painting by hand. Second, the process is long. Depending on the details, it takes between one to two weeks to finish one item. Third, I design all my stencils myself, which does take a few hours
It’s preferable that you don’t wash you coverall, because of the leather patch. If you do stain it, just use a wet cloth (with soft detergent) and gently rub it. It should be ok!
