Butterick 3918 ...Test garment

I thought it best to make a test garment for the jacket.  The Palmer/Pletsch DVDs teach the pin-fitting method, but I opted for the muslin this time.  That was a good idea because I've dropped a dress size since my last jacket.  It was quite a bit too big, but the FBA turned out well.  I hope it translates well to the fashion fabric.

  1. FINALLY! I can make comments! Technology...UGH! Thank you too for your service to our country my fellow veteran! After about a year of being in the Army, I wanted to switch to the AF - you all seemed so much smarter!!! (lol!) but the process was too complicated so I stayed put. I knew we had some sort of connection beginning with YOUR version of Butterick 5638. I LOVE IT! I have been avoiding "test garments" but have since come to realize that I may have to start making them. Can't wait to see the final product!
