I absolutely love this jacket! Wish I had one it’s so nice. I love denim. Someone that traveled with us before just called me to meet her. She had a roll of demon to give me (new). Yea! Said she took it didn’t know anyone who sewed & got it only because she remembered I sewed gifts for the bus trips. It was free to her so she gave to me. Really wide but not sure how much yardage is there.

Thanks, I have been sewing for a long time , I love to see what I can make, if it is something out of old stuff or plan new ones.

O'my what a wonder creation. I know this took a lot of planning. Curious, Did you create the fabric and then cut out or place fabric pieces onto your pattern to know where they would be located? (hope that makes sense). The front esp seems to me you had to place pieces to know.
However you created it , it is a beautiful, gorgeous, and fantastic jacket.

I did create the whole piece but still planed where the top and front should go, then put on my decorative stitches even which ones would show up the best and where and color of denim would be at, the collar is from an old garment also and it needed to make sure it fit the neckline, this part of the fun stuff.

It did turn out nice took a bit of planning , like the heavy fabric (some denim is much heavier than others ) where the ease at the shoulder seam needs to be of a lighter weight than the body of the jacket and where the seam must come together etc.

How kind of you to say so, this took a while, I did not want any two colors close together, and I want my pieces some what larger than normal, so the jacket would not be so heavy.

I have recycled old jeans to bags, totes, pencil zipper bags, skirts and a lot more, but never tried a jacket. I love it! Great work!
