I just finished my new Lt. Connix jacket, as seen in the "Vanity Fair" shoot with Carrie and Billie. It took me 3 days to draft and construct the jacket, and 4 spools of thread due to all the quilting Shocked I love this jacket and hope to get it submitted this weekend Very Happy

My build page is here, with detailed notes. I try to take pictures as I go, for future reference for others.

So many lines!




Understitched the lining, I love this part Mr. Green








I used a heavy duty snap over the bust, to prevent bursting out of the jacket with normal movement.






I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out Heat Transfer Vinyl to apply to the jacket front. I made a weathered looking rebel symbol in photoshop and used the Silhouette studio to make a cut file.

I took my submission pics and wore it to a troop to treat run it. People loved it, but thought I was Leia or from Star Trek LOL Laughing
