my own version of this jumper from urban outfitters. its not exactly the same - heavier and the back is completely different - but close enough, and with the added bonus of not costing me 70 bucks. i dont think i would have bought it, but isnt it nice to see what you can do for yourself?

very proud of that zipper. belt is optional, it just looks very plain without something to break up the cord.

what do you think??

very nice!  It is definatly cooler to make your own stuff than to dish out an overpriced $70!!! Good job Smiley

Actually, I like yours better than the original.  Good job!  And kudos on not laying out seventy bucks on something less cool than what you could make yourself. Wink

I also like yours better. The original looks like an oversized preschooler's dress, but yours is much classier. Smiley

You did a great job on that.. and yours looks so much better. Urban is overrated. I went there last month and they were selling a ribbon & elastic headband for $14!  Shocked

Groovy, I love it!  I'm very inspired, I running to buy corduroy right now.  I hate urban's overpricing, I also hate the people who actually pay that much for the stuff there. I mean they sell plain t-shirts for 20$+  WTF?! It's just jersey!!  Anyways, good job.

Also, I'm pretty 100% positive that I already posted a comment here, but it seems to have disappeared, maybe due to the freaky upgrades. So don't think that I'm crazy if the other comment magically re-appears.

That's freaking fantastic. I'm also gonna have to agree with Urban's crazy pricing. They got some cute stuff, but jeeeeebus.

Though I am guilty of buying some sale items. 10 bucks for a shirt ain't bad. :]

Yeah. I don't like the gathers on the Urban original- yours is much better, especially w/ the belt.

Look at me, I'm on TV, it makes up for the shortcomings of being poor. Now I'm in a million pieces picked up for deliberation by the people listening at home, by the people watching on the telly...

I have to agree with everyone else- yours looks way better! You did a great job, and I love the belt. I think it makes it perfect.
