Rock Chick Steffi

Added Apr 19, 2008

Colchester, Unit...






I’ve had this faux leather for years, waiting for the right project… after hours of working (and crying) here is the biker-ish version of Steffi. I inserted a zip and lengthened the collar. I also used the Eva sleeves.

Material Notes

faux leather (slightly stretch),


open-ended zip,

polka-dot lining




Garment Type



Fashion1 for the “how to” insert a zip in Talea coat

      thanks! I got it years ago at my usual fabric shop. you can probably find it online too but it might be a good idea to order a sample first to make sure it’s what you want…

    Wow! I really like motorbyke jackets (made few of them myself), and this one looks really awsome! Bravo!

    This is astounding. It looks great. Who would have thought that the steffi jacket had such a hidden edge?
