**Fair Warning: I’m about to overuse the phrase Bad-Ass! **
Just try to take this lolly away- I so dare you!
This weekend I finished my Upholstery Biker Jacket- then I wore it to see ‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’ and surprisingly wasn’t struck by lightning. I wasn’t trying to be themey- Lord no- Lisabeth is no floral gal! I am just instant gratification girl and new things must be instantly worn- like a kid on Christmas sweating away in a new snow suit all thru breakfast- because by God it was new!!!!
The pattern was very straightforward- ok, Suede, I’ll give you that round, but I still think you have creepy blue Hitler hair!
A biker mystery has been solved for me- for all the boxiness of the style, you don’t get a lot of width across the back of this jacket. So this is not the jacket for competitive archery activities and I now understand why the guys on Sons of Anarchy have some personal vendetta against sleeves- you really need the boxy armsyces unimpeded for serious bad ass biker moves.
As crazy as it may seem, I think I’ll get alot of use out of this- as soon as I put it on I thought of Lous Reed’s lyrics:
‘Vicious! You hit me with a flower- You do it every hour. Oh, Baby you’re so vicious…’
Mr Reed- will you play this post out for us in honor of my newfound bad-assitude? Thank you.
