Sea Kings October 09 2013
Through the looking glass. A week in the studio.
For inspiration, just take a look out of the window. Paragliding North Beach Bridlington.
Warm air travels across the bay and up the cliffs, providing the perfect lift to those brave enough
to throw themselves over the edge and soar like a bird.
Down to work. Made to measure Sea King cagoule in waterproof & breathable
British Millerain wax cotton. Brass eyelets attached for the front drawcords.
Panels laid out ready to assemble the hood.
Gimped button holes and real horn buttons for the front pockets.
Wayside Flower & British Millerain woven labels inside back neck.
Inner elasticated cuffs, pinned and pressed ready for sewing.
The finished Mens Cagoule. Ready for collection.
Right on cue. RAF Sea King helicopter approaches.
Stationed close by at RAF Leconfield the Sea King provides air sea rescue
cover along the East Yorkshire coast.
