New York, New Yo...
When I found this special silk fabric printed with safety pins and sewing needles, I knew I needed to make something that I could wear all the time (to hide anything made from this fabric at the back of my closet would be a crime against DIY!). So I drafted this raglan-sleeve bomber jacket. It took a few swings to get it just right. You can read more about the process and see even more pics at my blog Beau Baby
The silk is from Chic Fabrics (225 W 39th Street, # 11, New York City). The lining (also silk, I think?) I had on hand and the waistband, neckband, cuffs and welts are sewn in a lovely Italian ponte I bought at Metro Textile (265 W 37th St # 908). The zip is from SIL Thread (257 W 38th St # 1). Hooray for NYC’s Garment District!
