What materials did you use? It is so warm this winter in CA I can't wear my leather jacket. This is a poly faux pas that is really light weight.

What are you most proud of? I wear this jacket a lot!

Wow, this is so cute! I like to sew mine with fake leather, too. But I never tried out sewing with that leather. I think I have to collect some information. What about ironing? I think that this is not possible. How did you manage it?

It is a good choice for this class because Janet likes to sew without pins and this material is hard to get a pin through so you can't even cheat!. It irons without any problems. Don"t get anything to thick and I think you will do great.

Love your jacket! Have been reluctant to make this pattern because it's just not my style. But with your material and shaping I see a light at the end of the tunnel. So, thank you

Ah, thanks for your reply. I'll try it the next weekend.

I agree with most of the comments posted. I was undecided on this course until I saw your project. I Love the fabric and how you've made it look so up to date. Can you please tell me where you purchased fabric was it online by any chance? I'm looking online and haven't had much luck finding anything that looks distressed. I'm searching for Faux Soft Skin Leather, is this correct? Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

I got this fabric at Hancocks. I see they have something on line like it but i think it's decorator material and much thicker. I see that Fabric Mart has a lot of fake suede that would be a good possibility.
