New York, New Yo...
James Dean, the Fonz, Joan Jett…The classic motorcycle jacket just oozes ‘cool’. Here, we created a pattern for the ideal motorcycle jacket with all the essential details: asymmetrical center front with convertible lapel, zippered pockets, shoulder vents, tabs at the back waist, wrist zips…But then, instead of going down the tried-and-true road with black leather, we decided to give a twist to this classic with a luscious mustard wool. We can’t wait to see your interpretation!
Leather and faux leather can be tricky to sew, so perhaps try doing this jacket in wool, like we did. Silk lining, metal zippers, snaps, interfacing.
