So this jacket looks way longer on me! Too long, in fact, especially in the front. It makes me look disproportionate I think.
I don't mind the back though:
And I do like the looser fit in the size S that I got:
The bottom front is kind of interesting, it's got this extra black material on one side sewn onto the silk print part:
The other side is actually the same piece as the rest of the jacket. But the pattern distribution happens to be all black there:
The side has a black panel as well:
The back has this curved hem which is another separate piece sewn onto the silk material. As I mentioned already, I don't mind this look. Though I would prefer to be without it if I had a choice.
So I think I would definitely need to alter the front of this jacket if I were to keep it. I tried tucking the front into my pants to make it look a lot shorter, and a straight hem. I think I like it like that. I'm just not sure if the tailor could do a good enough job.
I think this length is a lot better. But I just have to decide if I want to bother with it or save my money for something else. Dilemmas!
