I changed the sleeves and the collar. I just love stand up collars. I had wonderful fabric (20% wool) to go with the faux leather. I think that I've finally achieved this cool, modern, edgy look. So I'm really pleased with this.
Then I carefully ironed the new collar under a kitchen towel and I - of course - managed to destroy a tiny bit of the fabric. It just melted near the iron. I was so (pissed off and) angry at myself. But I just sewed a strip of faux leather over it and it looks fine now. I think that leather and jeans are that kind of a material that can stand ripping, threading, sewing strips of fabric over.
