MYSTIC JIGSAW COAT

22 March 2012 by

I recently decided that I need to “turn up the volume” on my designs. Y’all were thinking the same thing, right?

This jacket will be perfect for Burning Man, so I recommend buying it from my Etsy shop now!

The shell is a insane upholstery fabric that I can’t imagine on a sofa for the life of me. I can’t decide if it’s psychedelic puzzle pieces or a scrambled sunset. I used minky lining, which is softer than the fluffiest kitten of your dreams. I think it’s a zebra, but it could always be a white tiger. Instead of a wolf in sheep’s clothing it’s a tiger in zebra’s clothing!

I used plastic boning to keep the hood open, and the stiffness of the fabric keeps it pointing skyward. It’s like the Rainbow chapter of the KKK.

I absolutely love the teal pompom trim, and who wouldn’t? It’s bright, silly, and kitschy, and the pompoms move when you jump up and down. I used some golden fringe with a tribal design at the hem. It reminds me of tinsel fringe at the bottom of Mardi Gras floats! Basically this jacket is a mish-mash of all my favorite psychedelic fantasties.

Mystic Jigsaw coat As in all my coats, this one has a two-way zipper. It can be zipped up just like your average hoodie zipper, but there’s a second head that lets you open it up from the bottom. You can wear the jacket like a cape, and the zipper makes it easy to ride a bike and really move your legs without taking it off. Plus it’s bright purple.

I got an ungodly (atheist humor) amount of this fabric, so there will be plenty more pieces made, including vests, a laptop case for Mr. Siadek, and my own playa-rific jacket. Bet you can’t wait!

    Hi Julianne,
    Super cool coat! And the fabric, mmm… so bright!
    I thought it will be perfect for my idea too: to make pants from that kind of fabric for Symbiosis.
    Searched the internet and couldn’t find it ๐Ÿ™
    If it’s not a big secret, could you give me a link to the store selling this fabric?

    LOVE,
    Katyaskvo

    I have recently unearthed several amazing new fringes. In the next week we’ll have them all up, plus those discount bins I was telling you about. I’m there Monday-Friday and never leave before 3!
