Birdie Bomber

Added Jul 11, 2016

Melbourne, Austr...






I drafted up a simple bomber jacket with raglan sleeves.

A lot of bombers are very complicated with padding, lining, pockets etc but I wanted to create a simple “blouson”. I wanted a blouson that I can wear out to the pub with my mates or a lazy Sunday ladies lunch . I also wanted to use a mid weight silky fabric to give it a day/evening look although it would look great in any light to midweight fabric.

    This looks great! Love your style. I guess, the jacket will be a good match with skirts and dresses, too.

      Thanks. Yes, great idea. A simple dress underneath would work well. x
