I'm working on view D (model in upper left corner) with the zippered welts above the bust.
Yeah, you know where this is going.
In theory it's a cute accent, in practice...um no. Big no.
All I see is expression-less robot. Kinda like this guy:
Seriously. This is what came to mind and I cannot un-see it.
I know better not to put bells and whistles near the twins. Buuuuuuut, I thought I'd try this thinking that possibly maybe perhaps it might not be so bad. Yeah, no.
The welts are interfaced, folded, and topstitched onto to the jacket front. There is no amount of pressing that will make this lie completely flat. Even if I topstitched the sides onto the jacket, the welts will stick out in an unflattering way. Honestly, I don't see how this will look good on any jacket.
A HUGE thanks to everyone who left feedback about the cardi. I'm still learning what styles are right for me and I am glad to have some honest (for or against) opinions. Thank you!!
