I love Jonathan Saunders style - quirky but classic, but I cannot really justify the price, especially for a jacket I would only wear occasionally. But isn't it beautiful? Surprisingly (yes there is some pink involved) I love the colour combination too! But, here is the thing, I could be making my own...
Pattern: the Rigel Bomber jacket from Papercut;
Fabric: I chose a Floral Embroidered Dupion from Joel & Son which is not as shiny as the embroidered silk used in the designer model but could work. I am also very (very keen) on this colourful version.
Probable modifications: Not sure whether it will be a modification as such, but a lot of care will have to be given to matching fabrics.
Bomber Jacket: You can buy it on NaP for a mere £1,495.00
So let's do the maths...
This would be one of the most expensive garment I would be making - but still at a bargain price compared to the designer version. Although before I get started on this, I would definitely do a muslin - just because I know I would be scared to cut into that fabric and mess it up.
However I have seen a lot of sewists' versions of that jacket, and it does look like the real deal on them, so it would be worth the investment.
