Y’all ready for this? ‘Cause the holidays are over, January’s here, and it’s time to sew some Rigel bomber jackets! I thought it would be fun to kick off our “sew-together” with an inspiration post! Mel posted some fabulous RTW inspiration already- have you seen her post? I wanted to show you guys some fun versions of the pattern that have already been sewn up… I’m filled with serious bomber envy just looking at these! [Note: obviously none of these photos are my own, and they’re all used with the permission of the owners. Also, when you click on each photo, you’ll be taken to the original blog post about the bomber!]
Florals are a popular choice! Check out Hanne‘s beautiful red floral Rigel:
And here’s Sally‘s fun floral:
Here’s Amanda‘s pretty floral:
Check out Novita‘s- she made a removable fleece lining for extra warmth! It buttons in… clever!
Florals not your style? How about tiny pineapples?! Look at this fun jacket, made by Elizabeth!
Or polka dots? Check out Lucinda‘s!
I kinda can’t deal with how much I love Clare‘s:
What about a cozy version in sweatshirt fleece, like Sophie-Lee‘s? I’ll take one, please!
Esther used a knit and some stretch lace- how pretty is this?!
Look at Kim‘s faux suede! Awesome!
What about a classic black version, like Emmie‘s?
Here’s another one from Julie:
Look at this version, from The Pretty Pickle!
Christy made a sporty version out of sparkly ponte. Fun!
This version from The New Craft Society, in quilted Liberty lawn, is fantastic!
OK, just as a reminder, we’ll be sewing together throughout the month of January. You can add your photos to our Flickr group, and our hashtag for Instagram or Twitter is #rigelbomberjanuary. You can grab a copy of the pattern here if you haven’t already. Alright… now… ready, set, Rigel!
