What I wore today-2-9-2011

Today was back to being cold again or colder than the previous two days.  So I decided to wear pants, sweater and my new McCall's jacket.  The pattern calls for snaps to be sewn to the collar so you can have it stand up.  That is just too much collar at my neck and I kept thinking that the wool would cause me to scratch at my neck.

So I place the snaps differently resulting in the collar laying differently.  One side overlays the other.


Here is a side and back view.






I can tell from my DH's reaction that he is not sure that he likes the style.  He kept saying it is so short and I kept confirming he was right. That was the intent and the design.  As I always remind him, I am the one wearing it, not him.  I do like the mid length version as well and see that as a possibility in the future.

As to wear ability, the jacket was warm enough for my office without being to hot or heavy.  It hung well all day and I was not constantly fiddling with it.  So that passes my wear ability test.

So now I am going to start working on my next jacket project.  I think I have decided to make the KS jacket next.  I need to order zippers as the local JoAnn's is undergoing renovation with hardly anything left in stock; and our newest Supersized Walmart does not have a very good sewing section, actually it is a joke and very disappointing section.  So online sources here I come.

  1. I like that jacket a lot! To me, the shorter jacket styles are perfect--not too hot or in the way.

    Let us know where you order your zippers! I'll have a need for some soon.

  3. Looks great Linda! My husband says the same things as yours about cropped styles! I think he does it mainly to bug me!

  4. I like the way the jacket looks with the overlapping collar. The whole outfit looks great. My DH has a hard time with styles that are different or fashionable.
