looks good overall! I worry that the keyhole is too small and the back closure is a little messy in the back. The neck in the front looks to be pretty loose fitting so I wonder if there is a way to tighten it?

Thanks for the comments! I’ll tighten up the collar and I think change the back to a snap closure instead of the hooks I’m using now. Unfortunately my seamstress friend is leaving the country for a month and when she comes back I’m the one going overseas :’) my application my application might have to wait until next year...

I agree with Joy. Longer keyhole (will also make it easier to pull over your head) almost down to the bottom of your shoulder blades and tighter collar. Smile I think your collar is a bit too large around your neck.

Sorry to hear you won't be able to get it done now, but better to get it all in order before you send it in.

aaah this has been an agonisingly slow process because of Real Life getting in the way Embarassed

How's my altered collar/keyhole?

Looks better but is there a top stitch along the bottom of the collar? I would remove that and shorten the collar in the back so each end meets but doesn’t overlap (like a double door)

Ok! Collar fixed once again -- it's not overlapping anymore and the seam around the bottom is gone.

hope this is alright.

i've taken some photos, they're in the link below. is this sufficient for submission? are there any more changes I have to make? are my buns too messy? Embarassed

edit: was advised to go ahead and submit my application by members of my local base, they say it's faster that way Laughing

Hello! Lovely work!
Your boots look like the ones I ordered that were sent out the wrong size. Before getting remade can I ask if they needed any modifications? Thanks.
