4th of July Ollie Bomber Jacket

Summer has been in full swing for a little bit now, so of course it's time to start thinking of Fall!
I've been dying to make the Ollie Bomber Jackie by Sew a Little Seam since it came out so I bumped it to first on my list to make for the upcoming colder months.

I was really pleased at how well this pattern came together and how easy it was to sew. I did hack it slightly to get the colorblocking on the front. I have hacking issues, okay. I do promise that the adult version I make will not be hacked at all.

I used the Faded Red & White Stripes and Stars French terry from Raspberry Creek Designs. This French terry is amazing. It's the perfect weight so you can make a pair of shorts or crop tee out of it and you wouldn't get too hot, but it's also great for jackets, especially when lined (like this one) to have that little bit of extra warmth.
I am really wishing I would have had a reversible zipper on hand though. It would have been so awesome to have a 2/1.

I have been loving my coverstitch and being able to add fun details with it.

I really can't wait to make my own version of the Ollie Bomber. Although I think I totally want to make it out of the French terry version of this striped Pineapple print! You can never go wrong with stripes or pineapples!


  1. The length of the coat ought to be in accordance with the center knuckle of the thumb and the back should rest only a little beneath the base.Beautiful jackets
