hi paroper, thank you for all your help, I had to figure the hood out myself last night as I didn't read your reply until now, but thank you so much I will definately be referring to your instructions in the future
as for the fitting, it was only pinned and will not be so tight when it's on! but again thanks for the information, it will be very useful in the near future.. (this was my first time making sleeves..!)
here's how my outfit turned out.
I'm only wearing the jacket for a fashion show in June so the fit isn't important
Thanks for all your help. Lou x
