So this is why I don’t like trusting patterns.
I mean, it is cute, but it doesn’t fit right. The shoulders are WAY too wide. And the sleeves aren’t quite short enough to be three quarters so they just look too short. I like where the waist sits, though. I should have measured myself, but I whipped it up so fast I didn’t expect it to be so cute. I was just playing around with some VERY inexpensive, beautifully stable knit. I love the finished jacket! There are dozens of things I would have done better if I were trying my hardest, but for something I threw together in one sitting, it turned out pretty adorable.
I ended up top stitching the shoulders to keep the facing in place. I did the same along the ruffle. The right sleeve slipped while I was sewing it, so there is a bit of a funky wrinkle if I lift my arm, but I don’t think anyone will notice. Nor will they notice that I had to switch my teal thread halfway through because I ran out of the less shiny one. All in all, super fast, super easy, and super wearable.
