Truthfully, I do love a good black sweater and jeans combo, but after wearing that day in day out, it gets boring, and makes me feel miserable, just like the weather. I really love the colour of this fabric; it’s like a tiny bit of summer came to visit and I’m not mad about it one bit.
I’m honestly not sure if you could call this embroidery. It’s nothing fancy or elaborate; it’s just a (very messy) back stitch and an attempt at writing words. But, I have to say I am quite proud with how it turned out (it is legible)!
Although, it seems a bit narcissistic to write my own blog name on my sweater, don’t you think? Hahaha! Truth be told, I honestly didn’t know what else to write, and I knew if I did write something I wanted it to be purposeful.
Is it sad to say that I’ve been storing my hair straightener in its box ever since I got it? That’s all well in itself, but that means that whenever I go travelling, I always end up wrapping it in clothes to protect it which honestly, is not the most glamorous or convenient solution.
After making my bomber jacket, I realised I had a lot of fabric left over; intentionally of course, just in case I had made some mistakes in my project. Velvet is an extremely comfortable knit with a pretty texture, so I decided to make some wide-leg pants with the left over fabric. The aim for this project was to create some lounge-worthy, yet socially acceptable pants that are an alternative to the usual trousers or jeans I would wear to work.
I’d like to say I have a significant reason for making this jacket, but honestly it’s just because I really wanted a bomber jacket.
I chose navy velvet for the outer fabric and a satin polyester for the lining (WHICH HAS SNOOPY ON IT!!!!) I really have nothing more to say other than that I REALLY love this and I am so happy with how it turned out. This jacket was so fun to make and it was honestly a bit challenging too, especially trying welt pockets for the first time, sewing an open zip, and sewing a lining in; but it was so worth it!
