|Here you can see the closeup with a little bit of extra indent on the main body panel to fit my torso better.|
|The body of the sleeve is cut in at an angle but the sleeves are cut straight with no additions. |
Also my kitten is trying to help (because it wouldn't be a sewing blog without a helper cat).
In general I was not trying to make the coat too tight. It's for fencing so it needs to move with me and accommodate an under layer or two. But I have breasts that stick out and curves at the hips, damnit. The angle cut on the body at the arms made the whole thing fit better and the lines look straight while they are on my body! All in all, the design looks very similar to this Selim coat
|The sleeve body looks like it comes in at a slight angle...and there's hip curves on the fabric.|
Up next is my Heavy Combat coat, and it's built even weirder!
