Ottobre Biker Jacket
« on: April 16, 2020, 16:45:14 PM »
I finally finished the Ottobre Biker Jacket in purple  :o faux leather.  It is from the 05/2017 issue which is probably my favourite issue - I've made three things from it so far and other 3 are in the planning stages.



I picked the jacket  pattern to use up a piece of cheap faux leather and to cure my zip inserting phobia.  This pattern has six zips.  The pattern went together like a dream - except for the fabric - it wouldn't pin, press or hold a crease.  It melted under a warm iron,  stretched as it sewed and broke three needles.  I would have had more joy sewing heavy duty bin liners.  However as long as no-one inspects the topstitching too closely I am cautiously pleased with how it turned out ( and zips are surprisingly easy after the third one).

I really like that, that collar looks fabulous.  I really love zips so this is perfect for me, if you get fed up of it. ;)

Great jacket and colour. The fabric sounds to have been a nightmare to sew, but you succeeded.
