I’ve put aside the coat for a bit. I think I need to read up on tailoring some more. Here’s what I’m currently working on:
I tried adding a long sleeve to view 3. I think this is part of my issue with winter vintage outfits. The kimono/cut-on sleeve doesn’t work for me in a long sleeve.
Then, I tried cutting a separate armscye and sleeve.
At this point, I’m not sure which is best. The kimono sleeve has more room for movement but I’m not sure I like the look of extra fabric at the armpit. Any thoughts?
