Sometimes you just have to call it a day and move on.
Obviously I did not make the wool contest cutoff in time on Patternreview. It was taking me forever to match up the houndstooth and then I had some fitting issues. And then I had to leave for Los Angeles. Then I deleted my previous post – oops. By the way thanks to whomever mentioned Mood Fabrics. I didn’t end up going.
I don’t think I have ripped out stitching as much as I have with this jacket!
A lot of the fault lies in the design of the back of the pattern. The back pleat will not sit flat, it pooches out. Someone else reviewed this pattern and she had the same issue. I am debating whether to take out the pleat completely as my only way to salvage the jacket or chuck the bloody thing.
I think we need to spend some time apart before I decide whether to continue with the relationship.
