So, in my last post when i made a jacket from a checkered bed sheet i mentioned making my buddy Luis a jacket.

this is completely from scratch, lined, band, cuffs, (lined) pockets, zipper, lined hood, etc.

both main anchor material and lining (which was a dark blue to match the anchors and banding) have some stretch which makes it that much better, haha.

it turned out so great, and he LOVES IT!


i actually finished and sent this to him about a week and a half ago, but i've been busy/lazy so i'm just now putting it up. haha

and i realize that i didn't take any shots of the lining....oh well.

enjoy.

 

 




AND!

Luis in the jacket! Smiley Smiley Smiley


and it fits him "like a glove". the sleeves seemed a bit short-ish on me, but that's because i have...long arms. or what Luis refers to as "monkey arms" haha. so they're perfect length on him. woo!

Excellent work. Luis looks to be all blissed out in his anchors.

hahah. you're incredibly lucky a) to have some ace jacket "skills" (as they call them in the business) and b) to know someone who appreciates a bit of good craftmanship. erm, craftwomanship. last time I gave someone something I made, I think it was a bracelet... and he lost it merely hours later, while frolicking in long grass.  Huh anyway... this is awesome. you should be proud.
