Hotpatterns has done it to me once again. I am in lust with this jacket pattern. Of course, me being me, if/when I get the pattern, I will probably be sewing it up in the middle of summer. In Cactusville. When the temperatures are 110+.
I still really like it.
I realized during the not-long-past holidays that I wanted something a bit warmer than my jeans jacket, but fancier than the usual fleece to wear while running errands and going out and about. Not tailored, but stylish.
I think this fits the bill quite nicely. It’s edgy, but not so outré that it would go out of style before I get it sewn. The seaming provides lots of possibilities, both in terms of fit and fabric. Fabric combinations – maybe a tapestry and faux leather? The zips could be colored or rhinestone. Oh my! The brain whirls. Inspiration Abounds!
Interior pockets, with and without zips. A nice sturdy handle. A special place for your cell phone (though I probably wouldn’t hear mine inside the bag).
Hmm, this post is sounding a bit like an advertisement for Hotpatterns, and that is not the case. I mean it more as a source of inspiration, which I have been lacking of late. Now the creative juices are flowing, and ideas are abounding.
It’s a nice feeling.
