Soaring High Jacket
Project Run and Play - Week 3 - Boys' Week
This week I was inspired by a childhood favourite - Astro Boy!
I created a jacket with custom screen printed lining:
First I created the template for the screen and did some test prints:
Next I laid down the first 2 rows of soaring Astro Boys:
Then the second row in alternate spacing to create the flying effect:
Lastly I did rows of stars in-between for the final look:
For the jacket I used Amelie's Paris Coat as a guide for a basic outline and altered it - taking out all the feminine tailoring!
I trimmed the jacket with handmade white bias binding (inspired by this look) and used 2 large coat buttons to finish it off!
I love it...my first adventure into designing boy's clothes was fun...and since my girls also LOVE Astro Boy I think this jacket will get bit of wear!
(Practicing some 'Boy' looks)
We also has some fun with the left over bits of fabric!
Amelie helped me stitch the softies shut:
And then she wanted to practice her stitching by making a piece for her bedroom:
It's now hanging in pride of place next to her bed!
