Samina, yes, I did make a muslin to check fit. I lucked out in that I only needed one muslin to see what needed to be done and then I just did a 2nd one just to double check that every change was in place before cutting the fashion fabric.

You look gorgeous in the raincoat! Well done. Thank you for the pointers about fitting the upper bodice, as I also have the same fabric and pattern waiting to be made up. Did you make a muslin first to pin point the adjustments needed in the bodice?

Beautiful! Amy Butler's laminates are perfect for sewing this coat as others are too stiff.
