Why on earth would you buy 7 yards??? That's like 6.4 meters!
Mine was done with 1.75m = 1.9 yards and the sleeves are a bit too long (my store bought jackets-coats have too shorts sleeves!) The pattern I taped together was about 1.63m And I told my seamstress to leave all those extra cm (175-163=12 cm that makes 6 additional cm for both sleeves)
for the sleeve length. I don't know what she did, but they are loooong enough! I would make sure the fabric is wide and long enough to place one pattern above the other (see pic)
. With my woolen fabric it didn't matter which way she turned it to cut the pattern out.
Sorry but I have no tips for taping together the pattern. It took me 3 days
and it came out a little asymmetrical
Just look at the part with Chinese symbols and look how the paper has to overlap to match the text together.
I'm a EU size 38/US size 8? and I think it fits perfectly. It looked too baggy on my mother who is EU size 36/US size 6? Mom thought I should try shoulder pads but I think my wide shoulders are all the padding I need Blyss

My seamstress did. I didn't want to ruin the beautiful woolen fabric.http://mze.pri.ee/kaalukad/mood/y2.jpghttp://mze.pri.ee/kaalukad/mood/y3.jpghttp://mze.pri.ee/kaalukad/mood/y4.jpg
