well, my friend Andy asked me to make him a jacket over the summer. poor boy had to wait over 7 months for me to actually sit down and make it, but its finally made (hey- i'm a fashion major in college, so i'm a busy girl)
with 2 yards of black denim and 6 hours of work (in one single night) on my part, here it is:

i am really proud of it. he's a really skinny kid so i actually asked a small (girl) friend to help me out with the fit. i used an old button up shirt pattern for ideas about the proper shapes for the pieces, but i made the pattern from scratch because of his size.
tell me what you think

one bonus picture:

he's in a psychobilly band and he plays an upright bass bigger than him. he's amazing though- sometimes he even will stand on it to play, and he drags that thing around the stage like it's lighter than i know it is!

The boys i mean are not refined
They cannot chat of that and this
They do not give a fart for art
They kill like you would take a piss
They speak whatever's on their mind
They do whatever's in their pants
The boys i mean are not refined
They shake the mountains when they dance

Oh, it's just kittens.

I want to leave this world the way I came into it:  naked, screaming, and covered in someone else's blood.

to answer questions in a fair order:

actually the zipper your seeing is a hoodie under the jacket. it actually has buttons (jean or overall style) to button the jacket up.
very nice! whats the name of the band hes in? i love psycho billy style its awesome!
he's in a band called scarlet fever. their myspace is:
