My moto Jacket...

Grosse Pointe Fa...






Sweet moto jacket. So many people have given the ‘larissa’ jacket a try, I figured I would make this one. I love the stand up collar and snaps. It’s very tough looking. I have done a lot of sewing for my little one, but this was my first ‘full size’ project. I am very pleased with the way it came out. I changed a couple of things on the original pattern – the way the pocket zipper is installed and added darts instead of pleats for a more fitted look in the back. Also omitted the front pleats altogether. And added a full lining. I learned a lot on this project – and welcome any advice or critique on how I could make my next project better. Thx:)

Material Notes

Fine wale Corduroy, flannel, zippers, snaps.

      Joost52 – thanks! :) So excited to have found your website, i have been waiting to make my own dressform for a while now, doing research for that is how I happened upon your site. One question – Did you find that low expanding foam was better than the big gap filling stuff? i’ll probably do some tests, but just wondering if you had tried both kinds…

      I went for the big gap stuff. You should empty one canister at a time and let it set. If you spray too much in one go, the inner stuff won’t harden out properly, and you will be left with a cavity with slimy sticky glue.
      Yes, that happened to me :) But even then it’s easy to fill that cavity afterwards and just saw/sand if any extra foam afterwards. It’s very easy to cut/sand/saw once it’s hardened out.
      Getting the plaster off afterwards, that’s what you should worry about ;)

    I have a leather jacket that style, I was wondering if I should make a fabric one so I can wear it to casual Friday :) I love the color.
