Butterick- 5039

Here is the cropped jacket I started working on in April. Unfortunately my sewing time has been very limited because life tends to get in the way. After completing the previous jacket I tweak the pattern by adding 3-inches to the bicep and added bust darts. A musling was made and it revealed that the back darts were optional because the length of the jacket was above my waist. I am happy with the fit except for the front armhole and the sleeves. The front armhole needs tweaking. I am stump on this one

This is the skirt I am working on I am using the same pattern I used for the polka dots skirt
One last word of advice don't work with plaids and stripes when you are tired and read your pattern notes carefully. Lucky me I had 4-yds of this fabrics.

The jacket looks likes its coming along fine... what exactly is wrong with the front armhole?

I think it looks great so far. The skirt is nice, also.

I really like this jacket & skirt combo, I love red and any combination with black in it. These look nice together, how are they coming along?
I hope your outfit turns out the way you want.
BTW I've nominated you for a blogger award, just stop my blog and pick it up. Take care.
