the 60's are back
alrighty, so my mother made a hippie jacket back in high school. (the good 'ol 60's)
I decided to make my own, not wanting to ruin hers. I bought an old army jacket at the army surplus store, then added patches (the most expensive item) and some band names.
Not quite done, I still have to add some back patches and some of my favorite quotes from the era.

Have fun with it, be creative as you can

I had something similar, made from an overall (or dust jacket, translated literally). It was this same green color and I used it as a summer coat. Now it has started to fray badly on the sleeves and hem and I'll make a messenger-bag out of it when I get my sewing room in order again. Happy

Hippies were against war and fighting. It funny that you chose to use a military coat to make your hippie jacket. Irony.
