|"I am not impressed"|
So this jacket did NOT turn out as planned! I wanted a pretty green wool bolero style jacket to wear to work sometimes, but the shoulders are a little too droopy and the sleeves are WAY too puffy for me to wear to work! It's still really adorable, but when I make the next one (because there WILL be a next one!) I will definitely have to adjust the shoulders and make the sleeves less fluffed up. After adding the lace applique, I realized that this would go perfect with my steampunk clothes and corset. So it wasn't a total DIY fail.
This is actually the same one my Party Poison jacket is made from. I do really like the pattern and the shape of the jacket on me, but it does need some help in the shoulder area. Also, I like how it goes together in less than a day! I made this jacket in about four hours.
This is a cute outfit, too. I think, if not to work, I would wear this out. Like on a date with the mister.
I'm keeping this post short, but trust me I'll be rambling in Friday's post! I've got lots to share with you guys.
