These picks and video are about a month old. Due to hectic times (in my AND Chris’ – the photographer lives), they’re out only now. Chris did a wonderful job on the video, yay! I made this jacket completely from scratch and it’s my first padded jacket with a proper lining. Yaaaas – progressing with my skillz! Again, I patterned it after my old silk bomber jacket and worked with YouTube videos and my book on the lining stuff. The webbing straps were meant to be there from the start because I fell in love with THIS design on VFiles – where I get inspiration a lot. Feng Chen Wang‘s designs are seriously awesome! The jacket is quite out-of-this-world and the straps are not functional at all unless you count the ‘look at me’ factor.
