but i live in texas... so oh well...

So my boyfriend had a pirate birthday party. and i had to make costumes. after i made the costumes i said, i have to make a johnny depp pirate jacket.. this was before the second movie came out so i promise i wasnt trying to copy keira knightley.. although she is definitely copy-worthy. 

anyways.. here's the jacket

sorry for the sideways..




and the whole costume put together.


excuse the retard faces in all the pictures.
  so tell me what you think! and if you have any ideas in easier ways to make this jacket. i would love to make more and sell them somehow but it took a good 2 days to make it.. maybe 3 including the day i took to put the lining in..
  thanks!

edit: if i did make these to sell, what do you all think would be a reasonable price? the fabric cost 40 dollars, buttons $20, lining was around $20.. and if you think about labor it took me a good 25-30 hours.. which i know if i started to make a bunch more i'd get a lot faster too.  but anyways... how much would you guys pay for that?

This coat makes me drool with envy. You have amazing talent.

What kind of fabric is that? It looks a little like corduroy.

yeah it is.  i wanted to make it out of something rougher.. a bit more like a canvas.. but the courdoroy was cheaper than what the upholstery stores had to offer. 
thanks very much by the way Cheesy

you could move to San Francisco, Any one caught with out a jacket or hoodie is clearly a tourist. Anyways-sweet -ass jacket. Did you make it from the scratch or a pattern? I am impressed. And I LIKE the tard faces. it adds to the jacket.

I made my own pattern.  I looked at a few long coat mccalls patterns...i looked at a few coats in the stores...but i never found the exact one..  so i ended up just cutting out my own from butcher block paper.

That's one of my most enduring memories of living in SF...the fact that you NEVER left the house without a coat, even if it was 70 degrees and sunny! And anybody prancing around in shorts and a tee were sooo not from there!

To the OP, I ABSOLUTELY love the coat! Color and all! I have been taking a patterndrafting class, and a jacket extremely similar to yours has been on my list to attempt. Looking at yours, I need to get a move on!
