Et voilà: My new alternative jeans jacket! (The fabric is an original one by G-star bought at Anita Pavani.)
Why alternative? Because I have so many retro and vintage inspired jackets that I wanted to have something less chic and a little bit more contemporary. Though this jacket is slightly seventies inspired again… or – if you want – gypsy like 🙂
The challenge was the thick and heavy material indeed – for me and for my sewing machine as well! This is what cost a lot of extra time as I needed to correct seams and so on several times before I was satisfied with the result.
And now I have a wonderful jacket/blazer suiting almost every other clothes in my wardrobe 🙂
As you can see: I didn’t have enough buttons for the sleeves. But I didn’t want to buy new ones. So I rather attached different ones matching the style of the big ones at the front -!
