Description

Over 7 x 1 hour & 15 minute weekly workshops learn to make a bomber jacket. We will start from the beginning - in workshop 1 all you need is a tape measure. There is time to gather the right tools and supplies after you learn to identify them. Thread Den will prepare your pattern and ship it to you. The plan of ongoing specific and succinct workshops also allows students to complete steps as homework, or unpick and perfect if desired.

COURSE PLAN

Workshop 1:

  • How to take your measurements and select the pattern size to make,
  • Discussing supplies required, fabric preparation & supplier suggestions for zips, and
  • Identifying the tools required for the course.

Workshop 2:

  • Lay up pattern pieces, and
  • Cut out lining, fabric and ribbing/cuff fabric. 

Workshop 3:

  • Setting up and adjusting the sewing machine, 
  • Assembling jacket fronts including pocket bags

Workshop 4:

  • Assembling jacket shell, and 
  • How to set in sleeves.

Workshop 5:

  • Preparing hem bands, collars & cuffs, and
  • Attaching hem bands

Workshop 6:

  •  Inserting a zip 

Workshop 7:

  • Attaching collars & cuffs, and
  • How to bag out the lining.

Choose contrast fabrics for the sleeves to create a traditional bomber, suiting fabrics for a super slick look or go glam with brocade or satin.


With a full lining, cuffs, waist band, neckband, POCKETS and open ended zip this is a project ideal for tackling with a teacher's support.  For an easier level; choose stable woven fabrics that are not silky or stretchy. If you are ready for a challenge; select a satiny lining and trickier fabrics for your jacket. If you can source a reversible zip, you can even make your bomber jacket completely reversible!
