Jacket for my nephew

Added Oct 23, 2013

Chatham, New Jer...






My sister asked me to sew a jacket for her son. I went to Ikea and got this fabric with which I have already sewed pillows and a beach bag. When I finished this jacket I got a bit unsure…. it looks very wild and colorful and I was not quiet sure anymore, if this 10 year would really like it! At the end I was very lucky! He does like it and it suits him perfectly. I’m very happy!
It is the pattern 34 from Ottobre 1/2013

    I’ve seen this fabric at IKEA many times and am always tempted to buy it to make a jacket out of it, but it not really suitable for a womans jacket :( But in this jacket it works REALLY well!! Any cool brand of kids clothes or skate-type clothes could put this in their collection!

      Hello Diana
      Yes, when it was finished I though so too, it looks very much like O’Neill things and such! Especially when my nephew wore it, it looks really nice!

    I think the jacket looks great! Me myself just completed a dress and used this fabric too. I am very happy with the result.

      That’s really nice to hear! I’m sure he will be wearing the jacket a lot and his friends will be jealous…
