Hello there! I'm looking for some advice on where I might find a pattern to suit the jacket in this image.



As far as I can tell it seems to be a motorcycle jacket with a stand collar, but a lot of motorcycle jackets have their zipper at an angle, and have an asymmetric collar. I've looked everywhere for a design like this, but haven't managed to find anything like it. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I hope I posted this in the right place..

I think almost any zip front jacket pattern would work. You would have to make the color blocking and overlays yourself though, also what ever those red things are indicating, maybe bits of reflective plastic or tape or maybe just part of the design and insignia?

Also maybe best to decide ahead of time, if a guy or a gal is going to wear it, when you even pick your pattern and just get a guys pattern or a gals pattern just to begin with. The way the drawn pants are drawn, make me think of a guy, but the clearly drawn bust and bustline on the jacket kind of indicates a gal instead. Which is it?

I don't think it matters which to just ride a motorcycle at all, but it might make a difference in just how your jacket fit, if made from any particular pattern.

Is this jacket going to be for fashion or are you actually going to ride in it? The two are not necessarily mutually exclusive but if you intend to use it for riding you need to keep protective properties of fabric and construction in mind.

I was thinking transformers too!
If not that might be the Dianese brand logo?
I think an ordinary jacket pattern would be the same but I have never done a jacket yet.
Sorry! Hope you get more help : )

Vogue 1036 has a collar and bottom band, and is pieced all fancy. Not exactly the same, but if you colorblocked it it would definitely give the same impression. I think in any case this is just not a great beginner project.

Try looking at some burda patterns.
I was looking for one I found one in th burda family.
The one I found has a white jacket on the front.

It's going to be me wearing it, and I am indeed a gal, as is the model in the picture. [I originally put up the full image, which was rather clearer, but it was huuuuuuge so i cut it down a bit.]

I'm a bit wary of doing the colour blocking and stuff myself as I'm very much a novice, and the image is at an angle which could make it more difficult, but I think I might hit up the original artist for help there. She seemed very flattered I wanted to create her design so hopefully she'll assist!

Thank you so much for your help. One more thing I forgot to ask - do you have any thoughts as to the material that would look best? Obviously leather would be the first choice but there's no way I'd be able to do that. Do you have any thoughts?
