Since I know that you wanted play by play action...
I like the front, it fits well, and it isn't too tight through the shoulders. I still need to add the structure to the shoulder/back area, but I need more batting for that.
Funny thing about that, I remembered to buy some at Universal, but I only got half a yard and it isn't long enough and I don't want to have to piece it. So, I am going to make it into a bunch of shoulder pads, and get more for the whole shoulder/back pieces.
I am hoping that more shoulder structure will get some of those wrinkles from under my arms.Speaking of the back:
I really like the fit better since I added a couple of inches to that back belt. I don't know what they were thinking making it too short, but it just looked bad.
I took Jenni's advice and understitched the pleats and they are nice and crisp, even though they pull a little from their basting thread as well.
As for the buttons, I have a few in my stash that will work:
I am actually leaning towards the smaller square ones at the top. I really don't like the great big square ones, but the round ones would work.
What do you think?
I really should go and get more of that batting and get this thing done, but I don't feel like getting out this afternoon.
I had forgotten how much Friday afternoons suck when you are unemployed.
No one wants to talk to anyone new on Fridays. I had an interview last Friday and didn't get a call back for a second interview this week.
Nothing good ever happens on Fridays when you are looking for work.
