This jacket is the perfect piece for this in-between season where it is too cold for a t-shirt but too warm for a full on coat. Plus, I am loving the little pop of color and pattern it adds to my mostly black winder wardrobe!
For this project I wanted it to be a little rough around the edges (litteraly) so I stifled my perfectionist instincts and just went with it… and oh was that fun!
I started with a thristed oversized jean jacket and another thrifted jacket for the fabric. I mapped out where I wanted to embellish and traced those pieces onto brown paper bag to make pattern pieces.
I cut lightweight wonder-under and my fabric out of each piece and pressed it all together. To secure it even better I hand sewed around all of the edges… these stitches show and are kinda messy… I love the detail and “handmade” look they give.
