2013 ESSENTIAL TOPS SEW-A-LONG FINISHED PROJECTS

WHAT IN THE WORLD....

HAPPENED HERE?
This is my jacket - it's finished all except the buttonholes and buttons. I think it looks really neat and it fits well also - which is way over half the battle - right? I posted pictures of the front and back of the jacket in a previous post.But now I'm asking myself, "WHAT IN THE WORLD HAPPENED HERE"?

The bottom right side is almost 1 1/2" longer than the left side. I used a coverstitch to hem the bottom because I
wanted the jacket to have a sporty edge with topstitching, I've also attached the lining at the hem. I was seriously thinking about leaving it uneven because I probably will not wear the jacket buttoned anyway, so it really wouldn't matter. But the "wanna be perfect" thing has had this wonky hem on my mind even while I was at work. Sooooooo, I guess I've got to remove the hem and make this adjustment so the inner me will be pleased.
I'll finish the waistband part of the matching skirt at sewing class tomorrow. In the meantime I'm fixing this hem......
I am sooooooooo glad that tomorrow is Friday! I've had something to do other than come straight home from work Monday through Thursday this week, but starting tomorrow THE WEEKEND BELONGS TO ME...

  3. well, I hope you straighted this out for sure, and you are right, a long weekend will be good so you can take your time with it and not just rushing because you want to get some rest or whatever.

  4. Ok... I know you are the one that should be screaming, but I silently screamed when I saw the pic. How could that happen? Did it occur during the collar application? Glad you have the weekend to fix it - the fabric is pretty.
