Every new jacket I make has its genesis from a previous design. One idea will spawn another. Or, a new fabric inspires a new direction. Or a customer asks for a change that in turn sends me off into new ideas and new possibilities.
Sometimes the connection is obscure, it makes sense to me, but is not noticeable to others.
Other times, the parentage is obvious.
For example, the jacket below, which is similar and obviously related to the first, but is sewn with different fabrics.
The original jacket below. You can see the similarities.
But different, like a mother and daughter.
Another jacket, from the same family. I posted this one in process, here finished. This one uses the same fabrics, but instead of solid black the sleeves are pieced.
All three jackets are different from each other but related. Like members of a family. Like a mother and her two daughters.
Generations, one follows the next, similar and related but new and different.
Happy Mothers Day!
