cameraman jacket

Added Dec 23, 2012

Louisville, Kent...






I made my boyfriend a jacket based off the Nigel Cabourn “Cameraman Jacket,” which has the unique combination of wool and canvas fabrics, two different button types and the iconic top pocket placement. I used Vogue 8842, a men’s parka pattern, for the base and adjusted it from there. More photos and details on my blog.

Thanks for reading!

Material Notes

Vintage wool (a gift), cotton twill, flannel for lining, leather patches and toggle buttons, regular plastic buttons, metal snap
