A little update on the trench coat. A fellow BurdaStyle member said that the pattern runs large and she had to take it in at the side seams. That's why I decided to make it in size 34 instead of 36 as usually. There were a lot of adjustments to the pattern, so I used old bed sheets to make a muslin (does anyone enjoy making muslins??). I had to shorten both bodice and skirt of the coat (as predicted), narrowed the collar and lapels, and made new, full length, fitted sleeves. In the long run, I'm happy I made a muslin, since I shortened the bodice a little too much at first. :)
Gotta go back tracing pattern markings on the real fabric ... Have a nice Sunday!
