we havent had one of these in a while have we
what have you guys been making or fucking around with? post some pics~~
here's a jacket i finished a week or two ago
the inside has a shoulder carry strap with buckle and 5 pockets for sandwiches and passports
from scratch all me o3o
sleeve pocket details
Thats dope m8. Please tell me:
Did you learn everything by yourself or you're studying pattern-making/fashion design?
If by yourself, what books are good to start from scratch?
Did you created pattern from scratch or used old bomber to make them?
Damn dude, that's sick.
Going to have to seriously step up if I ever wanna do stuff like that.
nah not at all yet. knoch is so much more familiar with patternmaking and the technical side of sewing, much cleaner lines/stitching etc
this jacket took a long ass time because i ran into a lot of problems with it and basically made it twice. like two months
cost is probably around 80 dollars for materials
mostly from rockywoods fabrics, zippers and snaps from ebay
i havent taken any classes but i might go to school for fashion this year. i bought a pattern online for a bomber, made a jacket following that to see how it would turn out and become more familiar with it, then i edited the pattern a lot for this one. havent read any books but i hope to.
<pic is the only one i have atm
just spend some money on decent materials and get at it. good synthetics are pretty cheap (9~10 a yard) and you only need about two yards for the shell and two for the liner for a jacket. (insulation is a different story, i spent about 35 bucks on two yards of primaloft to insulate this jacket but not every jacket needs insulation). if you are making a jacket with a liner, get a pattern w/ instructions online because it is kind of confusing how to do that if you've never done it before
That looks really good OP, do you think its better to start really small, with things like modifications, or do you think just about anyone can make a jacket, provided they have the tools and are willing to put in work?
thanks man. all the fabric for this jacket came from rockywoods.com but theres also nick of time textiles and natures fabrics that i've bought from, theres also this list that i've used
plus i still go to goodwill and cop stuff to shred
whatever works for you. itd be better to get familiar with your machine and how things work generally before launching into a project like this but you could definitely start with something more basic like tees or unlined jackets or hoodies. but anyone can do it just takes some practice
yeah i need them to see or whatever
he said it himself, knoch has been doing this for a long ass time
clean seams like this aren't easily done
not to mention knoch does his own patterns from scratch
i'm currently working on a pair of crusted corduroy pants (leftover wranglers that i want to find a purpose to wear)
it's my first contact with needles, so it's gonna be full fuccboi tier, but i'm propably gonna post it once i finish it
> the military antiques
do you really know the subject or are you just talking out of your ass
>hating on one of maybe 5 decent posters on this board
ye ok buddy how's your first week on /fa/ going, good?
It's not silly at all since most of his presence is just shitposting. Yes, sometimes he drops some wisdom but most of the time he's only attacking people for wearing brands he doesn't like. He's so fucking angry. Not only on this board.
Where do you find good patterns?
Looking for an unlined jacket similar to pic related
Cool shit yo.
I've been working with an old sewing machine and bought some light wash straight jeans from the trift store and sewed a pair tighter. It's looking alright don't have any pics yet.
Dyed it myself. May not be effay but it's mine and I love it.
