I finally made the muslin for the French-style jacket for my mom. My mom and I felt that the original jacket that came with Simplicity 6402 was a bit too boxy for her and thought the fabric deserved to be made into something she would wear more often. I combined the original jacket’s round neckline with the shape of Vogue V8369, and the three-piece sleeve from Vogue V8087.
I’ve heard it takes 70 hours to make one of these jackets. I wonder if that estimate counts the time to make and fit the muslin? Here’s to plugging away at it bit by bit!
