I made myself a lined jacket from Vogue pattern 9096. The jacket has petal-like overlays on the right side. The effect is very much like the clinker or lapstrake construction technique using overlapping planks for the hulls of Viking ships.

I am going to make another version of the jacket using brown material to emphasize the "planks" and then add a Viking dragon prow that curls around my neck and rests on the opposite side. This will be either very strange or very cool or both.
What do you think?
