Jacket Weather!!! Leather Jackets!

Hi Sew Fam!

I hope you all are having a great Holiday season and are finishing off 2014 in style!  I have been doing a lot of sew soul searching and along with it being cold out, I have decided to start making my own patterns in preparation for my 2015 goals!  Starting with jackets, the first one below, I purchased from an online boutique.  I love the jacket and decided to figure out how to make it in my own materials (original is polyester and at that time was only available in black).  Four painful hours later, I was able to create a paper pattern.  I opted to create this jacket first in denim purchased from Fabric Mart Fabrics before I DARED to try it in the fire red lambskin leather intended.  Total time: 9 hours.  You read correctly..... 9 HOURS!  After the New Year, I will be working feverishly to get this pattern to you all as fast as possible.  Once available, you all will be the first to know!

Here is the original:

Here is my denim version:

Get into my top stitching!!! The process of top stitching this Garment took (4) hours alone!

Here is my Leather Version.  There were definitely kinks to be worked out but I was able to get it together and it came out LOVELY!!!!

Top stitch!!!!

Ok, On to the next Jacket.  I have been inspired by another version of this jacket for some time.  I ordered this 2 ounce leather with hopes of making something extremely dope!  I used simplicity 1412 as a jacket base and made a total of 15 adjustments.  I still have work on the documentation as well as start to finish pattern, this one will definitely take some time.  Out of both jackets, this one was the hardest by a long shot!  

So as you can see.....I have HUGE plans for 2015... Stay tuned as the bar for this coming year will be triple that of 2014.  

I hope you all love it!  See you soon!
