ya like the lining
Overall, I'd say I'm, like, 80% happy with it. I don't work with patterns much, but I knew that my off-the-rack size would be different from my pattern size. But even thought I followed the sizing on the pattern, the jacket came out a couple of sizes too big. I had to rip the sleeves off and re-sew them on almost 2-inches back. And I had to take in the waist quite a bit, too. I also feel like it makes me look a little bit...well, I was going to say fat, but that's not right. Squat. Like my torso looks too short and my shoulders too broad. I chose the most flattering pictures here. Alright. I'll put up a less flattering one:
See? Something funky happens across the chest there. But at least my goofball kids are cute!
Anyway, yeah, I know I'm pointing out the flaws. So I should say that I don't hate it, but I don't love it, either. I love the color and I think when I add a scarf or my cowl, it helps a lot. And maybe some skinny jeans or a short skirt and tights would help balance it out a bit more?
