Good day sewing

I finished my tuxedo shirt, even if the picture is a little off color and grainy.

I also made progress fitting my jacket:

The shoulder and the sleeves look better. I took about half an inch out of the sleeves, and moved them in (made the shoulders narrower) about 3/8 and inch. I have also gained about 7 lbs in the last month *ugh*.
I still need to steam the sleeve caps and the pleats, but it definitely doesn't hang now. The peplum hangs funny because there is a pin caught on my sleeves.

Marfy 1245 - I am so screwed

15 pieces for a jacket! *sigh* I wish that I were attracted to easy things!
This doesn't even include everything. I see the front band, but I guess the front and back horizontal bands are overlays.

What do you think?

This is probably going to keep me up at night!

Oh well, I was looking for something to do with my time anyway.

I am done with my cute little blue and white shirt, except for the buttons and buttonholes. I will post pictures when that is done.

As for my gray jacket...

I took the sleeves out, moved them in to make the shoulders narrower and made the sleeves narrower by about 3/8. I have the first sleeve sewn and it does seem to fit better. Peggy told me that that would work, and I knew that was what it needed, I just didn't want to admit it.
