SewStylish Fall Fashion Challenge 2013

Pretty in Plaid ( Cape jacket)

hi my name is lulu, I’m a collage student at New York City collage of technology in Brooklyn New York. I study graphic desgin but I got a huge passion for fashion desgin. 

I made this coat out of simplicity project runaway pattern 1942 

and the fabric from my local Joann’s 

the whole coat cost me about 30 to make .

Main Fabric total of 4 yards = $20

Lineing = 4 yards = $4.00 

Pattern (onsale) = $1

Buttons: $5

Im really proud of it and I love the colors. 

Techniques i used include pipping and making my own linning 

the fabric itself is a jacket weigth wool wilth a plaid pattern with metalic tread with silver gem like buttons. 

it’s in the style of a cape, I think it’s a very cool and special jacket ccombination . 

thank you for reading about my jacket
