This is such a great tunic. I'm more tempted to buy the pattern every time I see someone make it.

I'm no expert in fitting but it looks like the shoulder is a different shape than yours. It looks like your shoulders slope down and the jacket shoulders are more square. Tuck a shoulder pad in the jacket and see if that reduces the wrinkles if so, then you would need to take the shoulder seam in a little and maybe cut the bottom of the armseye deeper. I am not sure I am making sense but email me and I will try again.

I love this cardigan, and your fabric is so pretty. I wonder if this fabric has different % stretch than the other one you made, or if it's heavier? To my eye, it seems that you could go down a size or two to get a trimmer fit. It looks like you've got extra room in the shoulders, sleeves as well as the body.

Both of your cardigans are terrific looking. My favorite is the one in claret wool knit with red top. I love the moment as you describe when you are free from the block of cutting into a quality piece of fabric. Nice work!

Love the claret! That length looks really good on you. Dog is great too.
