Graphic three color jacket

Added Apr 12, 2011

by powpetje

Leiden, Netherlands






This is the first jacket i have made so far.
It took a lot of hours and a lot of effort (and redoing!) to get the final result.
The sleeves look a little bit flat and ruffled (because it is flat) (unfortunately i don’t have an extra pair of arms for my dress-form :P) But I think i actually did a good job on the sleeves.

Material Notes

some kind of velvet in three colors.
black lining
2 zippers
a purple fabric




Spring, Fall
Garment Type

    The jacket is kicka$$ and so is your work room! Love it! You did a fabulous job and I think you have a great sewing future ahead of you.

    um, the FIRST? you sure do like a challenge. it would’ve taken me eight years of cutting and pinning to match up those stripes.

      Thanks :)
      This is not my first project but it sure is my first jacket.
      The cutting and pinning took ages indeed.

    A lot of work for your first jacket eh? I like the diagonal lines a lot.
