Making matching jackets with my nieces has become an annual tradition. This year Gigi requested a dinosaur jacket. This was a tall order especially since bomber jackets with dinosaur appliqus was not an option. Therefore I had to be a bit more creative with the limited materials and time I had available.

I decided upon burnt orange/brown tweed wool with sequins, which remained from a previous purchase in NYC. I also chose cherry brown genuine leather, charcoal wool, and dusty rose silk (for the lining).

There wasn’t time to create an original jacket design for my jacket, so I used a Burdastyle pattern from a previous project. (Burdastyle 1/2011 #126)

My nieces jacket are self-drafted patterns.
