The "Blouson Bomber Jacket" for Girls & Boys: Photo Round Up & Giveaway (Day 2)
Welcome to Day 2 of the Peach Patterns "Blouson Bomber Jacket" Photo Round Up & Giveaway. (Check out Day 1 of the Round Up here).
I have lots more great jackets to show you today including the one below by Karen @poshbotscreations / Karen G - Pieces of Me. Karen made the jacket for her daughter in a stretch cotton sateen with a beautiful flowers and birds print on a pink background. The pocket backs and facings are in a solid navy which coordinates nicely with the print.
N.B. If you're in Australia, Spotlight has a range of both printed and solid cotton sateen permanently in stock (not an affiliate link). This type of fabric is a great choice for the design as it's a nice mid-weight and with just that bit of stretch, the jacket is both easy to sew and really comfortable to wear.
The next jacket was made by Saskia @shewhosewsuk / She Who Sews and is a great example of how this design works equally well for boys. Saskia put a lot of effort into finishing and photographing the jacket. You can see the lovely details in the close-up photo of the pocket and also the one which gives a peek inside the jacket. Am in total admiration of those bias bound seams! Saskia was also kind enough to put together this great blog post where she explains more about making the pattern for her young man.
Last but not least is the gorgeous jacket made by Livia @livia.jy for her lovely daughter who is always keen to model her mama-made outfits with a great big smile on her face! The quilted cotton is another great fabric choice for the jacket and what's not to love about this pretty floral?
