Progress: Jacket v. 2.0
This is the second draft of Emeraldas' coat. This has been a longer process than originally planned because the original pattern draft (from Cosmode), while very close to what I needed, was not quite as forgiving to my figure as the second pattern I found was (it's a Vogue jacket pattern, for those wondering, I'll edit this with the number as soon as I remember/find it).
Putting a collar on E's coat was something I deliberated over. I decided to include it, even though her cloak has a similar collar, because it would make it easy to maintain the style if I remove the cloak for any reason. I am not sure that the end result will be as big as what you see here, mostly because of size change due to seam allowance. But it will be enough to be consistent to Masumoto's drawing style.
