| Jeans Jacket with Classic Styling
Jacket is sooo popular this spring.
We're seeing it in all kinds of fabric and with many modifications.
This one is cut generously, so if you plan to wear it over a sweater
or a hoodie, you can cut your usual size and know there will be plenty
If you want it to fit closer, as many of the girls are doing, cut
one size down.
Here are the steps we took to modify the pattern for my motorcycle
We cut up two sizes to accommodate kasha lining, thinsulite, the
thickness of the leather and an occasional extra sweater.
The lower band was eliminated.
The front was lengthened to just touch my leg when seated.
The back was lengthened so that it would just touch the seat of the
bike when I'm in riding position.
Instead of snaps, the front has an inside double-separating zipper.
Outside pocket flaps were eliminated.
The sleeves were lengthened and the cuffs eliminated.
Side pockets are zipped and there are two inside pockets faced with
Much of the top-stitching was eliminated because with leather, the
seam allowances are glued.
I'm delighted with the entire ensemble.
