Pamela dahlink!
We need to whip up some fervor about this topic.. Or fervently whip some peeps.
 I love this idea.
 I am working on a chambray shirt also inspired by something that I saw on Pinterest.
Actually I am going to ask for desing advice. I know you will say you  do not like MORE lace from me.
And most likely I will ignore all advice, but it is worth a try!

That's nice. A bit VW-ish.

I fell in love with this VW jacket. Haven't been able to find a pattern which looks quite right though.

I luurrve that jacket. Don't think it would be too difficult to find a pattern like it or adaptable.

I have wasted a good few minutes wondering what on earth those clothes have to do with VolksWagen.   :|
I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

Jessie, who is very happy to be here!!  :),  but who has far too many sewing machines to be healthy, and a fabric stash which is becoming embarrassing.

DH was looking over my shoulder and thought I was talking about cars too! Of course you can wear your VW jacket in a VW car. Or any other car. Or just out in the street while looking fabulous!

I must have a dig round my old pattens. McCall made some nice jacket patterns a few years back and there might be something adaptable there.
