I keep changing my mind as to whether I like it or not. Today, I like it. I think the not-liking is because the construction is not quite to the standard that I would like. The welt seams were going all very well until I hit the curved seams. Sadly, the curved seams are in very prominent places, being the tops of the shoulders. I had lots of trouble with the pockets, as mentioned previously. I have noticed that the Burberry cape that was my inspiration piece does not have pockets. Obviously, their designer knew that the pockets would be difficult! Also, my buttonholes could be improved. I only ever do regular button-holes with regular thread, but I think perhaps a different treatment was needed for this fabric. Ahh, the fabric. I do love the fabric.
Now, if only it would rain when I was out and about and not when I am curled up in bed.
