Christmas Presents 2, 3, & 4

Christmas Present 2:

Back in November, my niece Hannah texted me a picture of this jacket and asked if I could make something like it. She liked the pleather/faux fur combo and the oversized lapels. I decided to try and make one for her Christmas present.

The first issue was the fabric. I couldn’t find any pleather with a faux fur reverse, so I decided to go with a pleather exterior and a faux fur lining. Since I was going to be adding a very bulky lining, I started looking for a very simple jacket pattern with oversized lapels. I settled on Vogue 8430.

I bought my pleather from JoAnn’s and the faux fur came from Etsy. Let me just say that faux fur is messy. I hadn’t ever worked with this stuff before and boy oh boy, it was EVERYWHERE.  Thank goodness I have a serger–it was the only thing that stopped the shedding.

Once I got past the fur, the pattern was a breeze. I love how it turned out–in fact, I kinda want to make one for me.

Christmas Presents 3 :

Christmas presents 3 & 4 were for my husband. First I made him a Green Pepper mock turtleneck because he has a thing for mock turtlenecks.

I used a hunter-green sweater knit that I bought at the Fabric Joint in Decatur, Georgia. The pattern is TNT easy-peasy sew. I’ve sewn it before and I’ll sew it again.

Christmas Present 4:

I make a lot of Jalie jackets for me, but I’ve never made one for my husband. I decided it was time to take my jacket making to the next level and attempt one for Mr. Boonetowne. I chose Jalie 2795 because I’ve sewn it a billion times.

I used grey 300 weight Polartec fleece and black neoprene from Mood.
