Disappointing Fit

I have mixed feelings about this one.

Jacket from blue Saori warp

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.

Right front

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 as "linebacker " when I'm wearing it.

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.
