You guys I am so totally geeked about this vest for Jon! The pattern is the Denali by Colette's Seamwork e-mag. I knew the moment it hit my inbox that I had to make one for Jon's birthday. (Which is today by the way...I'm a bit behind :( ).
I'm making some mods to make it fit his style: fancy-pants pockets instead of the kangaroo pockets in the original pattern, a taller collar, a bit longer through the body, and hopefully a zipper if I can figure out how. It's all taking a bit longer than the 3 hours advertised (by powers of ten...) but I cannot even handle how excited I am.
Next step: hacking up this poor leather jacket that Jon donated to the cause. Can you tell I'm procrastinating by blogging instead of cutting...?
Friends, have you sewn with leather??
