Made this jacket for a friend, started to do bell style sleeves now i'm not sure if i should do something different. Even keep them 3/4 long? I just realized the back is not straight looking in the photo, the top loop really isn't crooked!!
Any ideas??
Thanks Smiley

Beautiful job!
The bell sleeves work great, I think the 3/4 length looks good there.
If you don't mind, though, may I suggest some sort of small embellishment on the front? Nothing too big as so not to distract from the gorgeous back, but still, something that catches the eye. Maybe a little lace flower brooch on the lapel?

It will have a button in the front, still looking for that "perfect' one. just pinned for now. Is that what you mean? Or do you think it should have something up on the breast of the jacket? Just curious!

Thanks for the comments, i will finish the other sleeve tonight!

The button should work wonderfully!  Wink

I didn't even think of that, I just assumed it was supposed to not have a button  Embarrassed

some sort of antiquey looking button, black.  or a filigrie (sp) pin.  I'm picturing two fir-de-lis with bottoms together, pointing out

I hope that makes sense!

or...marchacite (sp) pin.

sorry the spelling is bad tonight!
