Almost Done! Anything But Ordinary Muslin

This is my muslin for the ASG project--trying out size and fit of the pattern.  I made an XS per Louise's advice.  It fits fine--a little short for my taste, so I think I will add 1.5 inches to the lengthen line of the front and back pattern pieces where indicated.  Wonderful pattern--great directions, and perfectly drafted.  I'm not sure I would select this for myself, based on drop shoulders and no real shaping, but I think it's cute and may wear it more than I think.  I took my Singer 301 home, so I will save the buttons and button holes for a future date.  I also need to hem the sleeves.  No biggie.

Here is the jacket:

I think that's a great project for an ASG meeting. Sometimes, I'm sure it will feel good to have a garment that is just comfy and cozy and not restricting. Like in the fall, going for a nice walk or pumpkin picking!

Your jacket is beautiful! That will surely be a wearable.
