lovely! I really like the way the coloring on the jacket is and the shaping. Do we get to see it on you? Smiley

Wow! That looks renaissance-y and 22nd century at the same time.

Jeez I hope you can get it out from your finger. Tweezers, sewing needles, and patience are your friends.

Wow, great jacket! I'm impressed that you needle felted the whole thing, that must have taken forever! 

If you want to de-emphasize the seams, you can press the seam allowances open from the back, using a nice steamy iron. I actually press a lot of my felts with a big dry press and a squirt bottle, it really helps to get a nice finish or to add a bit of shaping Smiley

This is indeed beautiful. One comment that I have is that you may consider putting bias tape or a fabric border along the edges for a more complete look. I also agree with seam-pressing idea especially for the front seams. Overall, the curves of the seams, the style, and the colors are all drop-dead gorgeous! Cheesy

about finishing the jacket--

i debated it a lot (and the pattern actually had a collar and such to make it finished) but since the materials took so much time and are so raw to me, i wanted the jacket to reflect that.

it makes since in my head, but is hard to explain! hah does anyone else understand?
