Ugly fabric storyboard.
Here's my fabric, lining and top stitching thread, itching for action.
I'm getting my entry ready to sew up come June 1. I thought to myself, "one good lapse in taste deserves another," which is why I have opted for this McCall's denim jacket (M 5327 - out of print to my nothern hemisphere buddies but it's got another 6 months life down-under) to line with my ugly fabric. Oh that and it was half price. Ever the tight wad.
So then I thought, "a denim jacket, that's well and good, but what are you going to wear it with?' So I googled denim jacket images and it came up with many crimes against taste : le 90's, birthdate of le tacky denim jacky, has a lot to answer for.
Anyway, the best use by far of the denim jacket here:
but this was my pick of the others on option, and I like the pockets to the point I might have to copy them. The McCall's pattern has faux welts, which I loathe.
Also I think this has tres chic styling:
And I thought I might as well use it as an opportunity to improve my jacket construction skills so I bought a book on Jacket making. Will post highlights.
And low lights, for sure.
