I completely revolutionized the collar of course!
I also added 2" to the peplum. I like the length a little longer
I made the pockets angled like regular pockets (yeah that just looked awkward)
After wearing the other jacket for a few years I have a couple of observations: no pockets really drives me crazy!, the collar is kind of flippy and a touch awkward, I really think I will like it with a slightly longer look
As for problem #1, I LOVE pockets and this jacket has 3 welt pockets including the interior right breast pocket
#2 I changed the collar so that the upper an lower are joined (I used my Armstrong Patterndrafting book for this)
#3 I added 2" to the peplum of the jacket and 1 1/2" to the top of the bodice like last time.
I just need to add the sleeve lining, I may understitch the collar, add some canvas to the shoulder area and raise the hem just a tad.
I have always wanted to make something fab out of that purple on the right, but I only have 1 3/4 yards of it so I am thinking dress:
I have it layed out on Vogue 1233, but I don't quite have enough for the bias band and I would have to make it out of black. On the other hand, I could use 1206.
What do you think for the spring purple:
