Lookin’ Cool in My Bomber

I saw a bomber jacket available by Burda and I had to have it! I really like it.

I gave myself an early mothers day gift by doing some thrifty shopping and had just found this acrylic fabric in a red, black, white check pattern in a second hand store. I hadn’t loved the fabric, but knew I could use it — and I am pleasantly surprised at how well it meshed with this design of a jacket.

I needed a lining and remembered flannel birds I picked up a while back (for my daughter — but I needed it more). I just sewed the two fabrics as one which means exposed seams. This project is one I wanted to fly through soooo… seams be damned!

I also dyed white ribbing into the red ribbing which is used on the sleeves and neck/waist band and it was my first successful try.  It’s dark enough that it blends in better with the dark colors of the jacket.

I purchased lots of snap hardware and while it looks good, it’s major overkill and will never actually snap them all.

This was also my first welt pocket. It took some mental power, but it turned out very processional looking and worth the effort.

A pretty good fit all the way around.
