Fun fact: I actually drafted the top in Joy’s size so she would be able to keep and wear it after the show. This led to an interesting problem….

For the original look, we had paired the cream wool top with the tweed shorts. Visually, this pairing did not work for our model. Kat is long-waisted and she is significantly taller than Joy, so the waist line of the top comes up too high on her. The look could be salvaged if we had made the top longer to compensate for Kat’s longer torso length. Instead of sticking with this look, we switched the shorts out for the pleather leggings. We paired the tweed shorts with the leather vest as shown here.

I really like the top and have plans for making it in my size in the near future. I’m thinking cream leather collar on cream wool as well as black leather collar on black wool?
