What advice would you give someone starting this project? To get a pattern sized up beyond a 20 or to fit any pattern to any size body, take my class, "Plus SIze Pattern Fitting and Design." Coated linen is "challenging" to work with. I pre-laundered all these fabrics so I COULD hand launder this jacket if I wanted to. Somehow, pre-laundering the linen helped remove it's sticky, rubbery surface feel and rendered it just shiny and slightly crinkled looking, and it was easier to sew.
