Calling All Ferris Bueller Fans - Free Pattern for a Sloane Jacket
[Editor's Note: Most mommies over 30 know and love the movie Ferris Buellers Day Off. I could recite almost every word. We also remember Sloane in her cool white leather fringed jacket. Oh Sloane how I wanted to be you. If my son was a girl his name was going to be Tigerlily Sloane. I liked her that much. When I laid eyes on a pattern for a fleece version of this jacket made for a little girl my heart went all aflutter. I suddenly wanted to dust off my sewing machine and make one for my daughter Tallulah and one for myself. I may be almost 20 years older than Sloane was in that movie, but I can still rock a white fringed jacket wit the best of them. - Jen]
Over on Luv in the Mommyhood Shannon chatted about this fabulous jacket: "after recently taking part in film petit for one of my fave flicks of all time - ferris beuller's day off, i knew after having so much fun making my daughter's "sloane jacket" that i had to do a pattern for all of you! this jacket is such a blast to make! it was probably the most fun sewing i've had in a long time! the fringe, oh the fringe! i heart it and my daughter hearts it too! i hope you enjoy embracing your inner sloane and whipping one up for your little girl or heck - even for yourself! you could easily use the tutorial portion and draft up your own pattern pieces based on an existing jacket of yours."
