Some time ago I have bought a black cashmere/wool fabric for a coat. I have a dream coat on my mind with:
- high waist
- pleat at the back
souds not so complicated. Meanwhile – 3-4 muslins further – I am still trying to find the best fit.
I have made muslin of a coats from Vogue V8626 and Marfy 3177. Eventhough they had features from the above list – I was not impressed.
The try garments have showed that the features I was planning to incorporate in my coat in reality look and feel different.
I will make muslin for some of them to check how they look on me, how they fit. That’s the added value of making a try model.
The coat will be a perfect addition to my professional wardrobe essencials.
