Category: Vintage Jackets and Coats

Every Pinup Needs at Least One Good Vintage Jacket.

Completed Rockabilly Bomber sewn with the Rigel Bomber pattern | @VintageonTapAfter many years of avoiding it and putting it off, I decided to finally fall head first into sewing vintage jackets and coats. A little bit of wool, some interfacing, and a really loud lining can lend itself to a beautiful garment. As a seamstress, pushing your skills definitely demands falling into that world!

This category includes bomber jackets, full vintage style jackets, and everything in between. This category also has overlap with suit sets and the like- as I build my wardrobe and explore sewing techniques on how to make that perfect vintage 40s look.

Skills in the posts below include how to work with thicker fabrics, how to fit these types of garments, and even how to insert a lining, depending on the type of coat. This category shouldn’t intimidate you, but instead validate how interesting sewing can be and how you can take your skills to the next level.
