Oh yeah, I have been sewing!

I actually did get a little bit of sewing done before I got sick...
I like the shape of the collar really well. I am still not happy with that shoulder seam. I know that it has to do with that funky point where the collar is sewn to the shoulder seam. In hind sight, I should have been more careful and traced the seam allowance, then clipped the corner. This is way to easy to do with Marfy's, but I didn't.
I also really, REALLY need to drop at least 10 lbs, but I am on the way down instead of up.
I think that a really good shoulder line will help with this, but making a note at this point can't hurt.
I extended the front band by 2 1/2", and I will see how it looks closer to its original length.
I also need to tweak that center front because there is a little too much curve to the seam.


  1. Your jacket has some nice lines. I'll be interested to see the finished product. I applaud you for sewing with those parculiar Marfys!

  2. Wow, your jacket is going to be fantastic! What great details!

  3. That style looks good on you. I can't wait to see it with sleeves. Are they 2 piece sleeves?
