I just noticed that Rag & Bone has a coat that's eerily similar to View A (the red coat). It's called the Glenna coat and it's available at Neiman Marcus for $495.
My "real" coat will be in the purple (aubergine!) wool that I bought last week. For my muslin I'm using a checked cotton, a Goodwill purchase that's been in my stash for too long. It's almost a twill, I guess you could say, I think it's a little more stiff than my wool but a pretty good approximation. I didn't have enough of the checked fabric, so I made the second sleeve in a something that has a little more drape; I was interested to see how this might affect the look of the sleeve.
Well, I put on the jacket, and the first thought that popped into my mind was "CLOWN!". Seriously, the sleees are huge. It may not seem so in the pictures, but when I'm are wearing it, I just feel like I'm surrounded by sleeves.
I feared this might be the case when I was tracing the pattern. For perspective, here's the sleeve pattern piece with the sleeve wrist band right below it. The sleeve pattern piece is more than 2 feet wide.
So, I've got a little redrafting to do in order to make this jacket wearable. I'll take away an inch or two from the sleeve length, and oh, I don't know, close to a foot from the sleeve width.
