Logan, Utah, Uni...
I am kind of a nerd, and I love X-Men. I thought their outfits were really cute so I decided to recreate Jean Grey (the one who moves things with her mind). I used two simplicity patterns that I altered to have the same stitching and shape as in the movies. The leathery look is black foil fabric, that surprisingly has a little stretch to it. I am really proud of the jacket and all the details it has, to the buttons, belt buckle, curved side pieces, quilt batting shoulder piece, bodice stitching to the very cool back detail. It took a long time, but it was worth it. Too bad I’m not a red head. :)
Jersey knit, foil polyester fabric, symphony broadcloth, quilt batting, interfacing, thick foam, buttons and silver metallic paint.
