Just finished this jacket. It was kind of an experiment to test a new pattern I'm devoloping and it turned out better than I expected. Two of the photos show the front and back and the last photo shows the really swank lining fabric I found. I wish I could find lots more of this lining, as I barely had enough for this project.

Wow,, that's beautiful! It's an awesome design. I don't think I've ever seen a western shirt turned into a jacket! I love the color combos and the fabric. Then, I can't believe you drafted the pattern by yourself! Wow! You made an awesome jacket! Congrats!

This is such a sweet jacket. I love the cow steer on the back. Western wear is  amazing!

um. omg. Shocked i LOVE this. not only because of it's amazingness, but also because the first thing i thought of when i saw it was the Texas Longhorns (I'm a student at UT).

i need a jacket like this. well maybe a little more girly, but i definitely need one.

i envy your abilities! if you ever get bored and want to make an extra one...i want it! lol. just kidding. sorta  Tongue

I love personal swaps!

This is pretty cool! Corduroy is always awesome, and the western-style bull head on there is neat, too. I love the lining, it's so fun. You did a great job with this!

That is awesome. I've really been into western graphics and iconography these days.

Really well done! It looks very proffessional. The lining is a great touch, what kind of fabric is it?

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.
