Hello all…I’m back for another part of the Cape Jacket fitting for Mom. In this video I am walking through the step-by-step fitting process which I take in order to make sure she is happy with the Cape Jacket before I cut the fabric and move on to the pants. When I do a test fitting, I use a very bright colored sharpie marker and write all my notes directly onto the muslin or test garment. This is why I only use a light color fabric for my test garments.
I know some people use whatever is available, but I consider my test garment my “notepad” for my comments on the body. I like to take note of the hipline, waist, shoulders, neckline, etc., as they may prove useful when I look at the paper pattern later on before cutting and making adjustments. Sometimes, I use the test as my pattern and just remove the stitches and lay those onto the fabric itself.
