Got to say I've been following you guys wide eyed in awe! Amazing job so far, and the best of luck to everyone participating - my sewing skills are slightly above 0 but you've inspired me to start learning more so maybe next time I can join in Smiley

hey kids! so ive finally gotten around to going to the fabric store and finding fabric i like so im back to work on this thing. im almost done with the exterior one. then i need to make ANOTHER one to use for the lining (but that one should be easier, no extra flaps or straps.) you know- this is actually REALLY EASY. if you can sew well enough to put in a zipper that is really the hardest part. Smiley  i chose to kinda stick with the original color scheme without using actual flags. my white fabric tho has black lettering kinda printed on it all messy like- it says "dirty england" all over it Smiley i like the punkness i gives it. Oh! and i took the hard road and did the patchwork sleeve. worth it. to the pictures!

(from the front, flap up)

oh I love that fabric its so punky and matches the style of the jacket perfectly! Where did you get it from? It looks great so far, the colours really work. Jealous so much. I think I'm going to have to quickly learn to sew more so I can make this. Lets see how fast I can learn for summer! Grin

WOW, that is A-MAZE-ZING!  Cheesy I love the way you put the colors together!  Do you know about how much (yardage wise) you used for each color?  I'm thinking I might just want to try this now!

i bought two yards of each before i had the colors planned out- turns out im barely using the blue so that prolly could have been 1/2 a yard. Tongue i still have plenty left over too, id say youd be safe with 1.5 yards of both the shell and the lining. (oh! also, thats kinda ignoring the grain. i wanted the words on the white going every which way. so you might need 2 yrds if your pattern is one-directional.)

Sweet, I have about five different fat quarters with similar theme/ colors (music and violins!). I'm thinking I might be able to use that with pieces chosen at (somewhat) random from the different quarters.  Now I just have to get past this round of tests at University and I can try and start on this baby!

Oh I just looked on their site and I'm so jealous, I wish there was something like that where I live. I'm going to have to look around and see if I can find a similar style fabric that I can get my hands on in the UK. Just don't know where to look. I'm never very good at this Tongue

So what fabrics are the rest of you guys planning on using?  I've been procrastinating a bit, and I think it's partly because I haven't settled on a fabric, so I don't have a mental image of my final product.  I have an olive green floral brocade I'm considering using, which could give it more the look of the green runway version..  I've also got a bit (one yard 82" wide) of light blue silk twill with palm trees, which might be cool too.  But a lot of me wants to go with the flag look.. maybe I should look up some other flags..
I've got a lot of the muslin together, but there are still some pieces that confuse me.  (like the gathered one that attaches to piece  Huh)  Like I said.. it may be more that I don't have a clear image in my mind of how I want it to turn out.
