Thanks, I think she will enjoy it. The sweater will be the real
It was a struggle. I did manage to get the center front and center
back lined up pretty well, and the ribbon covers the worst of the CB
misalignment. But the horizontal line across CF from shoulder to
shoulder is off. I know, most folks would never notice it, but ...

As for 'most people won't notice' - I have been able to witness a worst-case
scenario on German TV a few days ago. Anybody remember Franka Potente, the
leading lady from 'Run Lola Run'? She's having a comeback in Germany in a
sort of weird crime series staged in Iceland (yes, I know...). Anyway, in
some scenes she's wearing this coat...
(scroll down to the third pic, the one with her headless, in that tartan-sort-of coat)
This is the garment with most unaligned pattern I have ever seen outside a
super-cheap-o-textile market. Currently I can't tell you at what time code
you can see it best, but I include the link to the website so you can view
it FFW, it's at about half of the film, I think. (It says that the clip
isn't available from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. local time as it isn't suitable for
underage viewers. As you can see, German TV has very strict notions about
youth protection. I only wish they had equally strict notions about the
protection of OCD sewists. ;-) ) :
Anyway, it makes you wonder where they got that coat from. Made by the costumes dept.? Bought in some Salvation Army thrift... I mean, of course, vintage boutique? Or bought new? Shame, shame, shame...

Oh, dear!!! At the very least the plaid should have been matched
across the sleeve/armscye junction. Bah!

I do wonder who makes up the garments for pattern companies' photo
shoots. Did you notice that on the picture of the Vogue pattern, the
CF is mis-aligned at the hem? And for the CB, they didn't try to
match vertical/horizontal stripes. Perhaps that may be why they
chose to cover that seam with 1.5" ribbon. As it happens, I do like
that design detail, but design options shouldn't be offered soley to
cover up layout and/or cutting errors. :-O JMHO
