May's colors are gray and black, along with the current Pantone lavender, which is rather pink toned rather than blue/purple.
My lavender tops are on the blue side.
So I thought I'd just wear a black sweater shell, gray Jalie pleated cardigan, and a fringed poly print scarf that is pink/lavender. Only the scarf is polyester, rather scratchy and hot and very fringy, so I pulled it off to eat breakfast.
And realized about halfway to church that it was still draped over the chair at home.
Not much purpose in taking a photo of just the black sweater and the cardi; you've seen them both lotsa times before and I'm sure the scarf will find its way into the wardrobe before the month is over.
So, instead, I dug the jacket muslin out of the bag I'd stuffed it in and let My Sweet Baboo take some pics that will hopefully show the issues I"m having with it.
I have moved the left front armsceye into the garment about 5/8", just as a test; the right sleeve hasn't been adjusted.
You've got to click them to get them to show the details; firstly, note that the front armsceye seam is on my arm, not on the pivot between my arm and my body. Secondly, I've got foldy things going on in front of the armsceye. There is a little excess around the princess seam as well, but that would be an easy adjustment. It's the vertical slop that really bugs me.
I don't know if the princess seam adjustment would be enough to pull the front up to level with the back. But there's the suggestion that the peplum has hung up on the jeans so it may not be hanging quite normally anyway.
I don't normally have to make sway back adjustments.
It's a cute jacket...but I've hit the wall on this one. I'm ready to try something different, if only to clear my palate.
It's going into the 'maybe someday' bin...
