alright guys- i finished my muslin rough draft!
i didnt bother to do the grosgrain appliques on this one, just wanted to make sure i knew where everything went. surprisingly, the pattern pieces are so well marked i found this WAY easier then any commercial pattern i've ever used! i sewed the seams on the outside just so i could see my markings and placements. it actually looks cool highlighting the unique piecing of this jacket.
im not sure i want to do that weird little gathered thing in the middle of the back on the top. its strange. and i like the deep v on the back without it, also i didnt put the flap with the eyelets on the back on the practive version either though i will on the final.
i kept noticing it saying something about "corset back" which confused me at first because as far as i can tell there is no corset-ry in here...so i think maybe thats just a turn of phrase?
one question, whats the deal with that button stand? where does that go? thats my only missing piece!
