I don't know why my hand isn't all the way in the pocket--I made them large enough to accommodate my entire hand...
Thanks everyone for your comments! I'm heading down the home stretch...
- Fixed the puckered collar (turns out when I sewed the collar in, the edge of the collar wasn't all the way up to the edge of the jacket...which created said pucker).
- Sort of fixed the right pocket (it's as good as it's going to get)
- Anchored sleeve tabs and sewed buttons to sleeves. (I'm thinking of maybe sewing the tab tighter to create a gathered, vaguely ruffled effect.)
- Hemmed the sleeves.
- Hemmed half of the bottom of the jacket (the left side).
So I still have to hem the right side and install buttonholes and buttons.
Definitely home stretch time!
Yeah, I definitely think I'll sew the sleeve band tighter to have the gathered effect. I think this photo is crying out for that.
Let's see that lining again. It's actually hemmed on that side now.
