Finally a pattern has been chosen! I traced the size 42 at the bust and graded to 44 over the hips for a looser fit, or at any rate that was the plan! I also lengthened the pattern by 3 cms

I am making a muslin from a similar fabric to the black and white. It is a neutral colour, more or less non-crease, which I bought in Lewisham market for £2/metre – good?! It is a colour which I could wear in the warmer months, and so I have decided to finish it properly – sew each step first before going ‘live’ with the ‘real’ jacket.

I have marked and thread-traced the seams and all the matching points and will bast the pieces together to check the fit. I plan to take the carefully tacked item to my tailoring class on Wednesday evening.
