Over the past couple of years, bomber jackets have been all the rage. I didn’t fall in love until the release of Gucci’s line of elevated bombers. They took the simple sporty bomber and gave it a much-needed facelift. Let’s be honest, it’s still a bomber jacket but when you add embroidery, metallic leather, sequins and everything else, that simple bomber is now amazing.
I wanted to take that same enthusiasm I had for the Gucci bomber and create an elevated bomber that made me just as happy. What was so necessary was a fabric that was luxe and comfy at the same time, which is why I chose this silk wool from moodfabrics.com that comes in 48 amazing shades. I can’t say enough about this fabric, it’s one of the most beautiful silks I have ever used. It’s a medium weight fabric that sews, irons and cuts beautifully.
The pattern used was my McCalls M7636 bomber jacket
