What are you most proud of? That I was brave enough to post these not attractive pictures. That I have not quit even though I am on muslin two. I am still excited about the jacket. I think?

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just take your time with the muslin(s) LOL

Thanks Erin but as we discussed no amount of work will make the shoulders and neck fit. Not the right style for my body type. Now back to drawing board and find a more suitable pattern :)

OMG, you are sooo patient. This is the only way to go if you want a good fit. Well done.

Wow Scheri, you are just a "stitchin' machine". Can't wait to see what fabric you come up with for the finished project.

Hi Scheri, This is lookin' good. I'm not sure where it is in the process, but the fit looks so much better. Let me know if you have more questions.

Please keep posting on your progress... I'd also love to know which pattern you settled on to fit your body shape as I might just have the same issue as you! I wish you every success!
