I finished my waxed canvas jacket last week, and have been wearing it ever since. I think I’m in love. Now I need a motorcycle (have my license!)
There is a bit more info on my blog about the process, but in short, this came together much more easily than imagined. I used waxed canvas for the outer fabric, a thrifted bed sheet for the lining, stash fabric for the pockets, and splurged on fancy YKK Excella zips. The main alteration (other than fit) was to move the sleeve zips off the seam and to the inside. This allows for easy access, and it matches the rest of the exposed zips (the seams are in an awkward place for the zippers to actually be useful, IMO).
waxed canvas, cotton/poly bed sheet, cotton, 5 zippers,
30 select jacket and coat patterns are now marked down to $3.99.
