When I was younger I was the biggest tomboy anyone would ever meet. I had set in my mind that I was going to go into the army (not just any branch of the army, but the Navy Seals). As you can probably guess my career choice has definitely changed since then, but I can still take inspiration from the younger tomboy in me so I designed and created a military jacket.
Jacket: Esther from the Sticks
Checkered shirt: Esther from the sticks
Striped shirt: Thrifted
Pants: Forever 21
Doc. Martins: Birthday gift from my cousin
Navy hat: My Grandpa's.
I designed and hand drafted this pattern according to my own measurements. It's made from a wool blend fabric that I got at Wal-Mart (like all my other fabrics) in their $1.50 section. I've been playing around with exaggerated silhouette so I created an oversize collar. There’s detailed seam work in the back, top of the shoulders, and around the waist of the coat that gives subtle geometric shapes to the design. The coat is fully lined with buttons and epaulet detail on the shoulders.
Now that my computer is fixed I have so many new projects to post, along with some exciting news that I will be announcing next week (my final college decision. Dun, dun, dunnnn). More to come soon and I hope you're having a lovely Easter!
P.S. Check out my amazingly talented sister and brother-in-law's new website! They're photographers and they just finished their new branding and I'm so proud of all their hard work!
