Orion Bomber Jacket

This little twill bomber was made for my space loving son. It started with the patch- a gift from my very sweet grandma. I found inspiration from vintage astronaut bombers and then used a basic tutorial to put the jacket together.
I used a soft twill for the shell of the jacket so that it wouldn’t be too stiff and easy to crinkle. I used a cotton batting and a 50/50 poly cotton blend sheet to line the jacket. The cuffs, collar and hem are black ribbed knit.
