Inspiration Strikes: Jackets!
Hello, everyone! Did you make any sewing plans for the new year? I’m really excited about making heaps of garments this year, but I think I’m most looking forward to sewing my first jacket! But what kind of jacket should I make??
I love the idea of a classic wool jacket (have you SEEN Erica’s gorgeous pea coat?), but in my quest to add more color to my winter wardrobe, I’m trying to avoid navy and black. So what about starting with a classic pea coat silhouette…
…and pumping it up with some bright color?!
Whoa! This is a whole new ballgame! Let’s paw through some bolts (virtually, of course)! Here‘s a gorgeous poppy-colored wool:
Wouldn’t this be amazing as a coat? Or what about this ridiculously amazing fuchsia wool?
Of course, it would be crazy to forget about our new Pantone color of the year, emerald! Here’s a nice deep green wool blend:
Finally, I’d be remiss if I didn’t include a chic animal print! Imagine this sexy leopard-print wool as a coat! I’m already purring at the possibility!
So what do you think? Does all this talk of jacket fill you with inspiration? What’s your ideal outerwear style? Do you like classic silhouettes in bright colors, or do you like to pair neutral colors with edgy, modern shapes? Do tell!
