Third Time is a Charm
So, today I was sewing on the snaps and the buttons. Ever since I made the Lettuce Jacket, I have loved working with snaps. I sewed on the 1st half and then the second, when I went to snap it together to check the fit, I realized I had sewed the second snap on backwards, doh! So I cut it off and sew it on correctly. This time, when I held up the vest, it was too far over so the heaviness of the fabric was flipping over backwards. So I cut it off again and re-resewed it right on the edge of the trim, which resolved this issue. Third time is a charm, I guess.
I am not super pleased with the fit of the vest under the arm section, I may rework the upper portion to skinny it up a bit, we will see.
