Pirate Jacket

Added Nov 26, 2008

San Francisco, C...






I made this for my boyfriend as a birthday gift…. ok it was a belated birthday gift.

At any rate this is the AMIN pattern. Instead of using sweater material I went with a pinstripe cotton and a pirate print cotton.

The pattern came out a bit short and the pockets were really confusing. It may have been because I added a liner when the pattern didn’t call for one. I also bought pre-made wrist cuffs so that I didn’t have to sew my own.

Either way, here it is…. I will post better pictures when I get time to take some.


Material Notes

Pinstripe cotton…. well it feels like cotton
Pirate print cotton
Ribbed Knit
Wrist cuffs

    Hi, do you think it came out shorter because of the material you used? I was thinking about making this in a different fabric too. Or maybe because you used a liner? Was that difficult as well? You can send me a PM if you see this.

    Awesome jacket, he’s a lucky guy! The corduroy fabric was a nice choice, it works well. It’s nicely put together with the lining too, I really like it. You’re very creative, I look forward to seeing more of your creations.
