I hate to admit it since I'm a nerd in denial but that looks pretty good. Is that one of those made in China jackets they sell on eBay?

No, I made it myself.
The China one's look like crap. (My Opinion)
Thanks for the compliment!

Wow, that is amazing! How long have you been a seamstress? :) I've always wanted to learn to sew. Techshop has CNC sewing machines (I'm a member).

Its none of my business what it cost you to make but if you cost is low enough, you could make a killing selling these things.

There's a guy over at the RPF doing a run of these jackets. No price yet, he's still working out the last bits of the design. http://www.therpf.com/f84/2015-marty-mcfly-jacket-updated-pg-17-05-28-a-201253/index15.html

That is pretty good. Matt, do they really have sewing machines there? I wish I had access to CNC machines. I've always wanted to be able to make stuff.

I don't mind spilling the ingredients.

The Jacket itself is a vintage 1980's Members Only Jacket.
The Red Rubber Material is Kitchen Shelving Mat.
The Bellows are foam weather stripping.
The Gray Bands and Pocket Flaps are made from Black Kitchen Shelving Mat (Dyed with Grey Auto Dye in a Spray Can)
The Sleeve Bands And Waist Belt is also Black Kitchen Shelving Mat With each individual Bump Cut and Glued on. (Then Sprayed with Flexible Rubber in a can)
The Squares on the Sleeves and Belt are Made from Wood. (Then Made to look plastic)


The Members Only Jacket was $18.00 shipped on ebay.
All the Shelving Mats probably? $15.00
All the Glue?? Maybe? $12.00
The Gray Dye $7.00
Black Rubber in a Can $7.00
Wood $2.00

But this was a learn as you go kind of thing?
With alot of trial and error
Mistakes = $$$

Next time would be easier.

I am planning on making a movie accurate one, Like this one!
Sometime down the road?
Then i will consult a seamstress like he has.
My sewing skills are Zero!
