Belated Projects and Commissions #1 Spidey-Coat

I’ve decided to start a new category of posts basically featuring things I made in the past that I meant to blog about but didn’t because I thought I needed better photos or was lazy. Basically, I’m trying to work through the backlog of projects.

Project Spotlight

So Entry #1 – Spidey-Coat Commission

So this coat is the bees knees (or the spiders eggs?). I was contacted at the end of last year but the most amazing person who had a design in mind for a Spider-Man inspired coat. She sent me some drawings, I sent her back some more with some fabric options. I LOVE combining different types of textures in garments, and I loved that she was into it. Once we agreed on the design, I got working, and here’s some of the end results in picture form.

Some garment deets:

Fabrics used:

  • Red and Blue cotton twill fabric for the main body
  • Ponte knit for the sleeve bottoms
  • Perfecto faux leather (this stuff is amazing)
  • Crepe de Chine custom printed at Spoonflower for the lining

Cool jacket details:

  • For comfort and mobility, which seems like a given for any Spider-Man ANYTHING, I made slotted seams on the pertinent seams with some of the red ponte. I love the look, and how functional it can be.

  • Oh! And red topstitching!
  • Thumbholes on the sleeves!
  • The hood is removable! It’s secured with hidden snaps in the collar so it can be taken off.

  • When I custom printed the lining, I actually scanned in the pattern pieces and designed every spiderweb pattern specifically for that piece. Lots of work, but worth it.


I mean, look at that?

And look how great it looks on her! Commissions are some of my most favorite things 😀
