    Sweatshirt Jackets I am making for Christmas gifts...

    So far I have made three of these, and with each one I learn another new trick!

    I have that paisley in the first one and I'm making a Bow Tuck purse. They would look great together, don't you think? You did a really good job on all of them. Nice fabric choices.

    These are beautiful.
    May I add a comment. I am very fat around the middle,so I prefer my clothing have the details around the neck and shoulders to avoid attention around the middle. This also gives a person height. I am a clothes designer.

    Sorry to be critical but if you bring the applique from the brown one around the neck you won't have a square look at the neck in the collar. You should pin your design on and put it on and see what you like best. Good job. Have fun.

    Here I go again, Undo the neck line and put your fabric under the knit collar and re-sew it. That will give you a nice finished look. Also the applique should be mid way, between the neckline and tip of the shoulder. The way you have it it is off almost onto the arm. You have great ideas you just need some fine tuning. I hope this helps not hurtful. Hugs and Kudos.
