Den Haag, Nether...
A friend gave me her long leather coat. Oversized and shapeless, the garment had been unloved and worn little by two previous owners and was given to me to make bag. Seeing how much leather was in is, I decided to try and make at least one other garment from it as well. I drafted this pattern with a lot of small pieces, so it would be easier to cut it out of an existing garment. I wanted it to have some of the ‘usual’ characteristics of a leather jacket (straight panels, back yoke, zip closure) and some more unusual and feminine touches (collar/neckline, short sleeves).
