I’ve mentioned just a few times about a gray jacket I wanted to make. I was inspired by this one:
I think I was having a hard time working out the ruffle/collar in my mind. So then I saw this one:
I figured this one would be much easier to replicate. I’ll tell you more about how I constructed my jacket later, but for now, I need some help.
Obviously, it’s not finished yet. When complete, the hem will be tucked in enough to line up evenly with the bottom of the zipper (kind of demonstrated here).
I feel like it makes me look very flat chested. But I’m afraid if I take it in much it’ll get too tight to wear comfortably.
It took a lot of fabric to make this, and I would have needed just a little more to make the cowl/neck as large as the etsy one. I don’t mind the collar as it is in the top two pictures, when I have it zipped up higher. But when I unzip it a bit, it seems like a giant point.
I could try making it a rounded corner, kind of like above.
I don’t mind the shape of the jacket so much when it’s unzipped (although I like the jacket as a whole better zipped), but the corner of the collar seems like an even bigger triangle.
And here is the most awkward self portrait ever. If I stuck my tummy out just enough and had the camera on timer, I could show you both sleeves at once! Should I cuff it so the lining shows, or keep the sleeve solid gray?
So this is where you come in, I need your suggestions. What would you think might help with the…
--Any other suggestions???
Thanks so much for your help!
