I had the pleasure of being a pattern tester for the Minoru Jacket by Tasia of Sewaholic.
Similar to all of my projects, I am in the habbit of working up a muslin before cutting into my real fabric. Tasia designs patterns with the pear-shaped figure in mind, and I have to say for the first time every, I cut one size from head to toe. It made me happy as could be. The only alterations I had to make on my jacket was to shorten the armsyce by .5" along with shorting then waist by a whopping 2" since I’m such a shorty (4’11") with a short waist. Otherwise the fit was wonderful.
I used a wool-blend fabric, that was on the mid-to-light weight for the shell, I used a burgundy bemberg lining, and I also interfaced the collar with horsehair canvas for extra body.
