If I do say so myself, this piece is a home run! I'm so pleased with the result. This jacket is a modified version of McCalls 6710; I changed it to be a button front, and made it less baggy. I am absolutely in love with this fabric!
The first day I wore this, I had a really excellent exchange with this random dude on campus:
Random dude: HEY! I like your jacket!
Random dude: Is that like a waterproof one?
Me: Oh, I don't know...
Random dude: Well what brand is it??
Me: I actually made it!
Random dude: Woah no way! Are you like a fashion major or something?
Me: I am!
And then later another friend asked me where I bought it! Haha. I love people.
My inspiration was this jacket from the Electric Feathers Spring 2014 collection.
My roommate and I were trying to sneak into a greenhouse in order to take these pictures--fortunately we ran into a professor who let us in to hers.
Happy spring, y'all!
