Collections project, Faux Leather Jacket

I altered a commercial pattern so that it embodies Rihanna, but still captures my geometric and structured style.  The commercial pattern only had one collar, but I made the design choice to pattern another collar, so it is a double collared jacket.  I added extra fullness to the peplum on the jacket.  There is topstitching on all of my seams to add a decorative and expensive touch.  The jacket is lined with a cheetah print to embody Rihanna’s wild vibe.  The faux leather added structure to the garment as well as giving it an edgy feeling.  This jacket represents Rihanna in that it captures her outgoing and contemporary personality.
