M5984 Progress & lousy photos
It's late afternoon and my pictures aren't very good. Arghhh.
Here's the front put together. TWICE. Yes twice. This jacket is seriously loose fitting. I put it together the first time and put it on Ruby and it was like WHOAAA. LOL. So, I took it apart and cut the pieces down from a 16 to a 14. Put it together again and its still loose but its a loose I can live with.
I also put the pockets together about 15 times yesterday. I guess my head wasn't in the game and I just didn't realize it. LOL. I kept putting them wrong side to right side. Gah...
Here's a side view. If you look at the armhole area, you'll see that I need to reshape it. I did topstitch all the seams to give it a more casual look.
Next lousy picture. Grin. This is the collar before cutting it out. I've laid out the piece and drawn a chalk line around it. Next I'll embroider it. Actually embroider both pieces and then seam them together.
That's all I've got for today.
