I wanted a leather jacket than goes with everithing, and fits like a glove…to buy one it’s very expensive, and I’m a XS size..so they don’t fit me well. So I decided to try and make one. And because it was the first time doing a leather jacket, I thought I’d use leather from 2 pairs of trifted pants( like 1$ both pairs), so I don’t ruin new expensive leather. The insinde it’s hot pink satin, the zippers cost more than the lather :) , and for the pattern…well I made it.:)( I made the sleeves pattern, and for the rest I modified a dress bodice pattern) you can see in the muslin picture( I kept the muslin as a layer, so than the jacket cand be worn all autumn long!:)
It feels and fits perfectly! What do you guys think of it?:) I really wanna know:)
black leather, muslin, pink satin, metalic zippers.
