I’m a huge fan of the denim/ leather mix and seeing as the weather is turning, what better time than now to make a motorcycle jacket!
This design is a variation of the master coat pattern included in The Burdastyle Sewing Handbook. I made the Audrey Hepburn inspired pea coat last winter and I shall blog about it soon, once I pull it out for the season (and add buttons ). *11/6/13 EDIT: Here’s the pea coat*
The book recommends to use ribbing for the cuffs and collar, but I didn’t add cuffs and used the pleather as the collar. I made it work! This was my first time using a separating zipper for a jacket. It doesn’t look too shabby for someone with a zipper fear like me!
I think this jacket has a slight Ferris Bueller feel to it. Bueller? Bueller? Anyone? Anyone?
With this jacket, I look like I’m ready to ride! Vroom Vroom!
