Jacket - Laura Alice Rogan
Tshirt - Missguided
Skirt - Primark
I know, I have a whole lotta 'fro going on here... Some days, it just can't be tamed! I just wanted to show everyone what has been all-consuming for me lately, the reason for my blogging absence and twitter hiatus. I'm not saying i'm Galliano by all means but I worked super hard on this jacket for weeks and weeks and in the end (despite the felt folding on the sleeves) it definitely paid off. I had never before made a jacket so i'm so pleased with myself - it's lined and finished professionally and everything - plus the elbow pads are weaved and took 7 hours altogether to weave both!
Obviously there are things I learned and things I could do better next time, but i'm just too happy with it to let it sit away in a cupboard. My inspiration was primarily Ivy League with a hint of 'Industrial Evolution', which is where my colour and fabrics came from - in case you were wondering why it was such a strange varsity jacket!
Now, onto the next project!
