Arrrrrg. I’m frustrated with the collar, it’s waaaay wider than the pic on the pattern envelope. When I asked my husband what he thought, he paused for a minute, and the best he could come up with was that the collar made me look like a “sailor or nurse.” I am, however, very pleased with the bagged lining – where you sew a second version of the jacket with lining and facings, sew the 2 together, and leave a hole in the lining to pull through the finished jacket. This was the best one yet.
