I am working on my spring 2011collection and pattern drafted my first jacket. After doing this, I realized, I need to find a fit model. I feel pretty confident with my first draft,just a couple of minor problems. The shoulders are 1/2" wider than what they need to be and the bust curve needs to be redistributed between the front 2 seams. This was my first draft of a garment with sleeves since college. I didn’t line it, but once the shell is to what I want it to be, I will be lining it. What do you think?
