MODÉLISTE: The Jacket

DIY

So I'm currently in the process of making another collection. I've started making but I'm so fickle, and keep changing what direction it is that I want to go in that I kind of need to start making all over again.

I'm not going to talk too much about the collection, but I will say that this jacket was supposed to be a Varsity Jacket inspired one. The choice of fabric was wrong, and I definitely think that it looks much better shaped to the body (see right). You live. You learn. So when/if I remake this I will be rectifying those issues. I should probably photograph it on myself as it looks much better on a person, but getting someone to photograph me is an ordeal I'd rather do without.

Which do you prefer? loose (left) or shaped (right)?

  2. Oh the pinning has helped the shape a lot. So I say the on on the right. This would look great on. Learning is good. Xxxx

  3. Definitely prefer the image on the right. I always feel a little frumpy, if my clothes dont fit me right, so I think that looks great!

  5. I prefer loose, but maybe not on myself! I guess I prefer the look of a more laid back style, but the reality is right is much more flattering.
