San Francisco, C...
I wanted to have a “vegan” motorcycle jacket that had the right look. The “Larissa” pattern was just the style I wanted.
I modified the pattern by making the jacket longer, particularly in the back.
I used a textured basket weave cotton that has a slight sheen. People assume it’s leather until I tell them the fabric is cotton. I used a sewn in cotton/linen interfacing which I doubled and quilted for the lapel area.
