I know Isshu has a new English name now for some reason, but I can't remember what it is and I don't feel like looking it up.
Anyway, here is the Ash Ketchum Isshu jacket that I made by myself (except that I made it in my sewing class, so I made it by myself with my teacher, and drove her completely mad). And oh my god curves. After this jacket I'm officially the curved seam and flatfell seam QUEEN. Seriously. Ash's mom is insane for designing something like this. (And no one BUT her would dress him in something like this.)
Also, three different people who'd never seen his costume before or knew he'd switched them asked me if it was a Pokemon costume during its construction, because it 'looked Pokemon'. I thought that was rather funny, actually.
Also also, NEVER EVER USE COTTON WITH A PATTERN DESIGNED FOR FLEECE. You will get headaches, you will stare at the pattern in bafflement, and you will wonder whatever possessed you to make a jacket with inset sleeves, a centered zipper, ribbing, a bloody hood, different colored panels, pockets, AND BLOODY BLACK SQUIGGLY LINE THINGS.
Delia Ketchum, if I ever meet you in a dark alley, we will have words.
Note 7/26/12: I am not currently taking commissions on this jacket. If you have ideas for other costumes, you can contact me.
