Here is the pattern I used:
This is the Bobbie Bomber jacket by StyleArc. I thought the challenge of the pattern along with the challenge of the fabric would be the perfect combination.
I love the black and silver combination of the fabric and did I mention that it you can use both sides of the fabric?
As you can see, I decided to use silver for accents to highlight all the work that went into the pattern!
Check out that cute little zippered pocket on the sleeve. I could have used a silver or black zip, but I wanted to add some color so I choose lavender, which matches the zipper guard fabric and also my lining.
The pocket is only on one sleeve.
Satin isn't hard to sew. In fact, it is rather easy.
Have your hand sewing needles ready to do some hand basting, especially along any sort of zipper.
I decided to add some color along the front of the zipper as well. The pattern has you use the main fabric as a zipper guard. I decided to incorporate some additional color that matched my lining fabric. And, the lining is also from Fabric Mart. Zippers and ribbing are from my stash.
Stretch your sewing skills this spring by picking up a designer fabric and a pattern that might be a challenge. Take your time putting it together and then have fun with the results!
