Lined Jacket Contest

I am still working on another copy of Vogue 1037 jacket. I really like it, but I am changing a few things this time.

  • Collar

  • Neckline

  • Size *Aack*

  • Length

The collar is too small and too Vintage which goes along with the neckline which is too open and broad. I am still not sure how I feel about broad necklines, but the collar looks out of proportion. The size was too tight through the shoulders and back so I let it out as much as I could through the sleeve seams. I also added to the length.

Other than that I loved it so much that I needed another one. I am still going to tweek the fit a bit, but I don't want to make it so well fitted in the back that I can't move my arms.

I took it to my first ASG meeting this week and they think that it needs thin shoulder pads. I will try that.

ASG unanimously agreed that you don't wear a red suit to a job interview, just my luck. So, I will have to go to plan B.

I still need to put on the welt pockets, and draft the collar. I should get to that next week.


  1. If you feel confident you should wear your red to an interview, the colour will be a reference point to the interviewers. One of my buddies wore a red jacket and she got the job, so again if you feel "bullet proof" in it, wear it with pride. JMHO

  2. I wasn't aware that red was bad for interviews. I If you feel confident in the red jacket, that will come across to the interviewer and hopefully net you the job. I also think it good to stand out a bit from the herd so you, and your outstanding interview performance, can be recalled easily by all of the interview panel. Just my two pennyworth.
