It’s a DIY: Floral Bomber Jacket

It’s a DIY: Floral Bomber Jacket

While browsing the internet one day I ran across this Gucci floral bomber jacket and I immediately was in awe.  I noticed that the luxury brand was pumping out such amazing looks all incorporating floral prints.  So immediately I wanted a floral bomber jacket.  And because I love a challenge, I decided to make my own version.

To create my bomber jacket, I used McCall’s M7100 jacket pattern.  I decided to use contrasting trim to break up the floral print.  The fabric choice was a dark satin that I bought years ago.  See how my fabric hoarding continues to come in handy?

I changed the pattern a bit by shortening the jacket by 2 inches.  For the waistband and wrist bands, I used black neoprene.  I think I played it a bit too safe with the black.  When I make this bomber jacket again, I will definitely use a striped contrast band instead.

To style the look, I went with thigh highs from Asos and these skinny jeans from Joe’s.  I guess you can call this my take on casual chic. The jacket could have also paired well with sneakers or ankle boots.  I have also worn the bomber with a black bodycon and pumps for dinner and I received a few compliments.
