Behold! the most flamboyant article of clothing I could construct on such short notice! Have started dressing more visibly queer/wearing eyeliner etc. post-election, because I don't particularly feel like being afraid of bigots at the moment. Made this on a whim because I saw that Joann's fabrics had a huge sale yesterday. Made with denim, silk, ribbed knits, and Quilt batting, all of which are materials I hadn't worked with before. Additionally, first time making pockets, and I made the pattern for this myself. I plan on adding flaps with the flamingo fabric on top of the two breast pockets, and buying/making a canvas patch for the back.
It was, uh, a rough construction process. Lots of errors, and it could certainly fit better (need to fix the shoulders...), but as a first attempt at a jacket, I am pleased. Denim was not an awesome choice for the primary fabric, and if I were to start over again, I would probably make an un-lined, un-batted denim jacket that would lay a little flatter.
