January Sew Confident! The San Diego Bomber

January Sew Confident! The San Diego Bomber

​It's here! The first Sew Confident! tutorial of 2017, the San Diego Bomber. If you haven't used our Sew Confident! tutorials before, they are our monthly digital tutorials that can be subscribed to by the year, or bought individually as they are released (a first for 2017!). This year our theme is Variations With Verve and each month we will be sharing techniques for customizing patterns for your unique style, To kick off the year, Erin demonstrates how she transformed our San Diego pattern into this on-trend bomber jacket. 

​Our San Diego pattern has simple lines and an eye-catching collar that make it easy to alter into a new garment style. In the tutorial, Erin will explain the inspiration behind the bomber jacket style, her method for altering the San Diego pattern and adding the knit band, as well as her tips for customization. All of this is laid out in an easy-to-read pdf that shows her altering techniques step-by-step.
