A bomber jacket win

And She Made bomber jacket

This DIY isn’t my usual style, I have to admit, but sometimes stretching ourselves to make something out of our comfort zones is what sewing is all about, am I right?

For this make, I used a pattern from Prima magazine from last year (and available here if you want to buy it). I’d had it cut out for quite a while and finally got round to making it a few weeks ago when I was briefly reunited with my sewing machine. I’m really pleased with how it turned out and it’s so warm too. A win all round!

I then added some cuff fabric, which I got from a sewing shop near Wimbledon and a zip. So it really didn’t cost all that much to make and I’ve used up my scraps too.

And of course I couldn’t not wear it with my favourite Liberty print Delphine skirt, could I?

Are you a fan of the bomber jacket? I’m on a jacket/coat roll now so let me know your best patterns for making outer layers – I’d love to give some more a try!
