I promised my bf's sister that I'd help her make a pink ladies jacket for spirit week at her high school.. I'm experienced in sewing, so hopefully this won't be hard. Here's my idea on what I WANT to do, I'm hoping to get my fellow craftster's opinions on if this will actually work before I try it tonight..

Because the outside is pink satin fabric, that would look crappy as a 'one fabric layered' jacket, and that stuff doesn't sew very well, I wanted to take a black hoodie, cut it apart at all the seams, discard the hood part.. then cut out pink satin slightly bigger than all the hoodie parts, overlap them, then sew it back together...  to where the pink and black aren't 'quilted' together or anything, just layered, and then the black hoodie becomes the lining of the fabric.. the pink will be kind of poofy..

then I can add the black arm band parts to the ends of the arms, and a black band all around the bottom and top edges, and then cut off the zipper part and add black snaps like the original jacket is..

Having never done this before it sounds pretty darn good to me.. plus she only needs it for one day so it doesn't have to be very durable I guess..

Does this sound okay to ya'll? Any tips before I begin? I'll post pictures tomorrow!

Sounds fantastic!

I don't see why it can't work - you might need to do a little bit of 'constructive' sewing to get it to fit together though!

Good luck.

ooh. now get it. not a blazer- a bomber jacket, like the one from grease. yeah that would totally work. just make a satin shell and sew it on to the hoodieat the slleves, hem and collar. you could even tack it on if you wanted.
