I am finally done with it!
After my adventures with the shoulders, the bust, and the hips, I stumbled upon other issues...
Laurence and the collar...After cutting every re-worked piece in my other muslin fabric, I realized I did not have enough for the second piece of the collar. To the hell with it. Only one was necessary ;)
Laurence and the sleeves...After all those changes on the top part of the coat, I had corrected the sleeves too so they would follow the adjustments. Yeah, right... It did not work at all. In a final attempt, I tried using the sleeves of the old muslin, and they work! This must be magic! However, it feels like they are a little bit too long and form a box (as they are the same length as the coat).
Laurence and the back...
I completely forgot to adjust it. Therefore, you can see al little crease on the picture. It has been since then corrected ;)
I cannot wait to see what it will look like with the fashion fabric, and especially with the pockets! They will be on the front sides.
I am not an expert, and I call for your tiger eyes.
Do you have extra suggestions?
How short should I make the sleeves?
