That's right! The receipt says the fabric is Ocelot print, not leopard print as I thought. I just assume everythign is leopard print! So there you go.
I made a motorcycle jacket a few years ago from a pattern I drafted myself. Well I didn't love it, even though everyone else did.
Yesterday I decided to have another crack at it, changing a few details from the last one. I made the zipper more diagonal, added zips up the sleeves, pockets with zips, and cropped it + added a waistband around the bottom. I also added a few big metal snaps.
The pattern I made has about 9 pieces, and I had to change a few of them around the zipper. I tokk it in 2cm on the sides too to make it a bit more fitted. It has darts front + back at the waist, mext time I will make them wider so it brings it in more.
I hate lining things, and I did good for most of it, I got lazy at the sleeves tho. They gave me the worst trouble. I ended up having to slice the sleeve in half lenghtways + add the zipper, then stitch the sleeve back together!
It's warm tho, and looks hot
Please forgive my early morning face! ahh. i don't really hate you!

Aaaand a close up of the collar, so you can see how cute the lining is.
Now I need to experiment making them in different sizes. I dropped out of Grading last year, although yesterday I made this dress for a girl and I graded it successfully from the size 12 basic pattern I had to the size 22 it had to be!
So hopefully I'll be ok
