A Pop of Blue

1 Comment

I know, I know. Neutrals are my favorite, but sometimes a primary pop is what a project needs.

This subtle splash of color was inspired by the jacket itself. While constructing, I thought it looked like a painter’s smock sans paint. Inspiration hit and I thought maybe some colorful snaps could stand in for paint smears.

After a quick google, I found both red and blue snaps and ordered. I ended up choosing the blue to coordinate with the dark blue topstitching.

PATTERN: Seamwork Parker

FABRIC: Carhartt denim from Mill End


MODS: Shortened sleeves 2″

This jacket is very easy to throw on and I’ve been wearing a lot. It features raglan sleeves, angled pockets that go all the way to the side seams creating FOUR POCKETS, a back pleat, stand collar, a perfect straight cut, and cuffs.

I am also wearing Shop Pants and my natural dyes bandana.

  1. Wow, this really makes me want to make this coat! The amount and shape of all of the pockets has me heavily intrigued. I just don’t know if I have the sewing skills to tackle it. All the versions dancing around my head have tonal contrast on the pockets (like a dark teal body with sea green pockets, or wine with peach), but I love your solid white with pops of blue. It’s really nice to see your take. You’re SUCH A GOOD SEWIST!
