Denim Jackets....

Do you have a denim jacket or a jean style jacket?  Looks like there are several options for fall.  Here's a couple that catch my attention:

Here is a denim jacket with near classic styling of a jean jacket.  This is the RtA Denim Jacket.  What do you think of the pintuck detailing?  What do you think of the zipper closure and the zipper cuffs?  Regular price is $575.00.  Right now it is marked down to $400.00.  The pintucking wouldn't be too hard to accomplish.  Just need to do the pintucking before cutting the sections out. Remember to match the fronts It would require extra length.  A sander could be used for the rough detailing.

What do you think of this interesting take on a jean jacket?  A little more feminine look with the cinched just above the waist and little bit of peplum.  This jacket is by Co and the retail price is $470.00.  I think if you shortened a standard jean jacket pattern and then drafted a peplum section you would come close to this look.

If you want a closer look at either on of these jackets, hop over to Neiman Marcus and search for the company and jacket name.

Need a jean jacket pattern?  Try this pattern:

This is the Jordan Jacket pattern by Serendipity Studios.  It is pretty much a standard jean style jacket. Use the link and go check it out.  Remember your jean jacket can be as plain or fancy as you want it.  Denim, linen, faux problem. Faux leather...why not?

Need more inspiration?  Hope over to youtube and look up the Silhouette Patterns #900 Carol's Jacket.  There is a ton of information on making changes to a jean jacket pattern  Obviously, this video is geared toward Silhouette Patterns jean jacket pattern.

Hope your inspired to make something wonderful!

Happy Stitching!
