Joining The Rigel Bomber Jacket January!


For fall, I bought my tween daughter this freakin’ adorable bouclé jacket at Nordstrom. It was on sale and I’ve been kicking myself for not buying one in my size as well. (excuse the bad shots – winter AM sun in the PNW is not helping me right now and this is too short a post to set up the big camera; just going with the trusty Nokia.)

It has these cute quilted pleather shoulder inserts, a great metal zip…it’s really soft and cute.

So, I’m going to join the Rigel Bomber sewalong put on by Ginger Makes and make my own. ha. so there. (isn’t she beyond adorable, this gingermakes gal? I love some of those mood sewing networks ladies. ADORBS!)

I’ve got this flocked Italian wool from Mood, with some silk lining (also from Mood)

Mood Fabrics

I’ve got the Papercut Rigel pattern, and I’m on Mood right now for the ribbed binding….I haven’t decided on the zipper yet…I’m thinking I’ll try to use a Joann’s coupon for that?? OH, I will go and check Josephine’s! I have some quilted pleather that I may or may not use as well…I’m undecided. Is that too Madonna c. 1984? Or just the RIGHT amount of Madonna?!?!


Woohoo….my first coat. Here we go….
