Swing jacket

Turn anything into a playground.

Knowing how something functions is dull. Finding out how something works on the other hand is way more fun. In order to keep learning I got into sewing and creating cut patterns and applied it to a project I always wanted to make.

This looks fun! Can you make it?

After uploading the sketch below to an online platform a journalist from VICE magazine asked for the jacket for one of their events. A great motivation to start the project. The event never happened… but now I have a pretty neat jacket!
