Hey all, hope you had a great holiday season.  So getting back to work,
here is something I just finished: a jacket for my ensemble.
here is the ensemble w/ unfinished jacket.

here is it finished:

And here is the question:  Since the collar is not cooperating 100% by being slightly wrinkly due to the fabric's tendency to bunch up, I am considering going over it with another collar with the same fabric as the body.  Look @ left vs. right.
what do you think?  and is it better buttoned all the way up or only buttoned at the middle?

thanx Wink

That's so cute! It's so wonderfully old-timey Cheesy
As for the collar I like the contrast with it buttoned up all the way.. I think it lends to the overall look Smiley

I really like it buttoned all the way up - it's a cute style. And also, leaving the orginal fabric there looks good (even if it is a bit wrinkly) because then you can tell more easily that it's supposed to be an outfit, if it matches with the skirt.
Nice work Smiley

Just beautiful.  You can also just through the jacket on with jeans and look great!

Thanks for the feedback fellow craftsters!    Cheesy
cyberange:  The jacket is an "easy" mccall pattern (5007 i think).  I think it was not hard: I did it half following instructions and half not, because I can't understand what they are trying to describe. Tongue  I am a visual person, and not so good with reading instructions without extensive illustrations!
