Description

Back in high school my best friend and I used to build model robots. We’d save up (what we could, after comic-binging) and go to the nerd store and buy mini-Gundam models to assemble. I’d been having flashbacks of a perfectly ordered row of mini-robots on a display shelf ever since I picked up these two wool remnants in the odds and ends bin a couple of months ago.

More here.

Material Notes

Pattern: Patrones 308, short jacket #12.
Like every good robot shell, this pattern incorporates an arsenal of awesome features i.e. modified princess seams, epaulet sleeves and Dior darts (thank you perfect combination of knowledgeable sewists and Google Reader).

Fabric: White wool blend, red melton wool (both remnants which together cost me A$18). Lined in polka-dotted cat print Japanese linen (which Carl picked up for me when he was in Japan 2 years ago).

Modifications: I omitted the pockets because they were too high and small to be useful.
