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