sewing inspiration | the bomber jacket

Friday, February 19, 2016

Last week I attended the Trend Preview at Neiman Marcus, which is always a great time. Who doesn't like looking at beautiful clothes? I love seeing pieces up close and looking at the details that go into each garment. The trends ranged from bare shoulders to confident reds, denim everything and the redefined blazer. But I couldn't get this bomber jacket out of my head. Beautiful embellishments!! I remember the first time I wanted a bomber jacket, when I saw Utada in this jacket. On a road trip to Montana, we stopped in Las Vegas where I found said jacket. I was a child and mom was right, satin gets ruined too easily. Both bombers were/are out of my price range. So I think it's time to make one. 

I'm thinking I'm going to try this BurdaStyle pattern, I might even make a muslin first. I think the key here is what I embellish it with. To be honest, I'm almost tempted to go full varsity and put a big "J" on it ha! The other half of me wants to go full Grease and make a pink one. Either way, satin seems to be the way to go.
