The finale -- McCalls 5859

My jackets is done and I must say, it too is a winner. The yellow and black were the perfect combination. I'm still hovering in the "Land of Goth" with my black accessories and makeup.






I'm still losing weight and it has become a problem as to what alterations need to be changed. For this jacket I had adjusted the pattern some time last year. The FBA was much too big now that I've lost about 25 lbs. I forgot all about that and had to take larger seams in the bust area and underarm. I'll put my review up on PR in the next few days.

  14. Your jacket looks fab!

    I do have a question for you though: I was looking at your PR review, and I seen your FBA pic. Now, I notice that when you did your FBA, it skewed the armhole. Did you just leave it like that, or did you fix it in a later step? Is my question even making any sense? I'm having a tough time with armholes, so I think i'm just seeking random information.
