It’s almost here! It’s almost time for the Ziggi Sew Along to begin! Not only will you end the month of March with a fabulous, new jacket, you could win prizes doing it, too – thanks to StyleARC and Fabric.com! I’ve also created a Flickr group so you can begin chatting, showing off photos, etc. Maris and I will be starting our blog posts Monday, come join the fun!
With that said, it’s high time that I talk a little bit about my fabric selections. I’ve decided to go with a ‘traditional’ looking moto jacket in black leather. I went with Fabric.com’s fused leather (a cowhide that has been fused to a woven backing) and a red plaid for the lining (yes, I was a child of the ’90s). Unfortunately, this time around, I was not able to take advantage of a lot of salescoupons so the break down of this project is, well, pricier than a lot of my other projects (but still far less than a leather jacket ‘off the rack’). Costs aside (ouch), I am super excited to get to work on this jacket… I think when it’s finished I’ll pair it up with my cool new leopard leggings, a pair of boots, and hit the town!
