This jacket is a different cut from regular jackets so it has a weird fit to it. Instead of one seam around the armholes and a seam down the middle, it has a long seam from the shoulder to the cuff and a couple of seams down the middle. But it is slowly growing on me. I might even be able to bring myself to keep it for the future.
I was going to try to wear this jacket for Halloween with the blouse that I posted about before. But did I actually even dress up for Halloween? No, I did not. Kinda sad. I was too busy to buy/make the accessories for this costume and I just gave up. Maybe next year I will have time to do something much more substantial...
I was hoping that I could MAYBE use this dress for my after-wedding dinner or after-reception dress, but I think it looks too ugly for it. I don't know when I am going to use it, if ever. Church? I still think the cut of the pattern is cute, but maybe I made it a size too large? Either way, I think this kind of fabric is the wrong choice for this dress. The sleeves are fugly and it is not flattering on my shape at all!
Sigh... Oh well. Maybe next time. For now, I am just going to buy my other dresses for the wedding. And as for sewing projects, I will just work on mending my current clothes until after the wedding when I can dig my nails into a more substantial project.
Only a month left until the wedding! And so many things to do! Ahhh!! It's exciting though. I am moving on to greener (and warmer) pastures.
