as you might know (or not) i registered here a while ago but lack of confidence for posting my then crappy projects i got lost...
now i want to post some things and trust me, there are a lot of stuff i made the last three years... so, to prevent spamming the board with all things at the same time i start with a profect im, yeah, really proud of and will add others from time to time.
so, i like to introduce you to my burtonesque biker jacket i made three month ago. the pattern is from an old burda magazine i had to change to my size and also had to construct a pattern for the lining.
the fabric is some kind of cotton twill, the lining acetat taffeta.
it consists of an asymmetric zipper closure with a band at the bottom that is closed with a press button, like the cuffs too.
the collar was probably the most tricky part as im always no good when it comes to revers collars... Undecided
i painted the cameo with the deer and the bats with acrylic paint and attached two elbow patches at the shell sleeves that have a spiral topstitching.
what else to say? idk, i think it cost me about 30 euros for material and took me 16 hours of my lifetime.
oh, and my dress form is a bit to big for wearing clothes that are my size  Cheesy

thank you for taking time to have a look!!

That. Is. AWESOME.

I've been dying to have a leather motorcycle jacket, but seeing this has inspired me hugely to make one out of a different fabric.
Love the details and everything, the fit looks perfect.

The deer is pretty sweet too, I can't help but think of Jagermeister haha
Amazing job!

I love that jacket.  I am so impressed at you tackling all those zips.  It turned out really well.

Ah! I love it! I need to make one so bad, but I can't find a pattern I am happy with. *misses being able to look and pick up burda magazine*
Love the lining, very clean work!

thank you all so much!!
La-Fairy, you can have a look at the website of burda, they sell patterns online, theyre even printable at home. i doubt that they still have this pattern because its from 2004, but maybe you can find a similar one! i wasnt happy with this pattern too, but changed it so ong til i was content with  Cheesy
