I have mixed feelings about this one.
On the one hand I LOVE the colour. Wearing vibrant, bold colours makes me feel happy and alive.
But I’m not happy with the way that front hem is hanging. The Right
front is sagging a little. I think it’s in part due to the relatively
loose weave. I should have backed the entire thing with fusible
interfacing to give it more stability.
I also didn't intend for the “hairy-ness” to be so prominent. It’s
because one of the fur yarns is white. The places where it is pink,
blue, or black I actually like.
LOVE the way a bit of Saori weaving peeks out of the back box pleat.
Not so in love with the way it fits me. Even though I chose a size
smaller than my measurements indicated was necessary (because I’m
successfully dieting and anticipate being smaller by far in a few
months), the jacket is rather large on me even now. I won’t get much
wear out of it before it’s uncomfortably loose on me.
