Next project: Biker jacket

images from
I really want a biker jacket this fall to pair with some summer flower dresses, tights, and booties. I want a real leather one. I love the smell and the feel of real leather, that the fake ones don't have. I've been checking some leather biker jackets, but they are so expensive. I was hoping to score one at a thrift store, but I don't think I will get that lucky.

Thankfully, I found this biker jacket pattern on Burdastyle. The design is simple and slim fitted, which I like. I have never sewn a leather fabric, so I will try in thick jersey (my favorite) or denim first to try out, then perhaps make one ine real leather. Anyone knows where to purchase leather fabric in Tokyo?

This hot pink mini skirt with big pockets was added to the shop today - check it out!

I am still in search of a nice biker's jacket too! one with a nice shape and nice fit is very hard to find I think...
I've been thinking of making another one of the burdastyle version. the one I made before didn't turn out the way I wanted... maybe wrong choice of fabric... I'd also want to try leather!

I want a biker jacket, too! I like the Burda Style one, and I also have Vogue 2973, which is pretty cute, too. :)
