Yeah they are definitely too low on top too, that's part of why I'd like to make it more like a jacket that I can wear over a blouse and skirt. I haven't found any examples of jackets that are open in the front like that though, so I'm not sure if that's an acceptable style. This
is the closest thing I've seen.
The outfit I'm trying to plan right now is this
skirt (probably going to add a ruffle to the bottom since it looks short) + a top somewhat similar to this
+ kneesocks, accesories, etc. It'd be nice to have a coat for winter, but still have my cute skirt showing. Plan B would be to just make a capelet, I think.
