First off, I have to explain about this color. This is MY COLOR. My boyfriend once asked if I had bought stock in that color, because I wear it so often. My winter coat is teal, the fleece I wear at work is teal, my childhood bedroom was painted teal, the one cocktail dress I own is teal. I think you get the picture. This is the one go-to color that I know I will love, no matter what. Not every single variation looks great on me, but very few of them ever look straight up bad. It's safe in that way, but I never seem to get bored with it. So the fabric had that going for it.
Unfortunately, it turned out a little too big (you can totally see the shoulder seams dropping off my shoulders), and I'm definitely not in love with how the hood detail in front looks on me, not to mention how many times I had to unpick those corners on the front to get them even remotely straight. You can see in this picture how the armscye is definitely too low....
And in this one how HUGE the hood is on me. I know some people like that look, but it just looks silly on me.
|Trust me, this was the best picture I had, and no, I don't know why I look like I'm praying here.|
