How to make satin look more worn out and ragged?

Okay I'm not 100% sure I put it in the right category but whatever.

So, for the cosplay I'm making, the character requires a brown leather vest.

I wasn't able to sew it, so I bought a leather vest and I'm going to modify the front so it looks like the original.

The problem is, the vest I bought is only leather in the front. The back is made out of satin of the same color as the leather part.

My question may sound extremely stupid, but I'm a newbie so please don't ridicule me. Is there any way to make the satin part less... satiny? Aka to fit the front more? I'm going for a pirate cosplay, so it could work if I made it more worn-out, ragged and vintage. If it was cotton fabric I could just make a few holes and dirt it up with tea and soil, but any of those will look horrible on satin.
Any tips?
(Don't say "buy a new vest", I had reasons to buy this one. It's perfect in color and general shape, as I said, I just need to add some things to the front)
Not making cosplays because you want your debut to be absolutely perfect and can't meet your expectations is stupid.
You will never get started like that.
It's okay if your first few cosplays are hideous.
You can't become good without even trying.
