I used size 36 for this lightweight, but fully lined coat. The muslin actually fit nicely after I extended the body one inch and the arms three inches.
I interfaced all the pieces with a lightweight fusible interface since the 100% cotton material is so soft and flexible. It also wanted to ravel badly, but the interfacing stopped that.
The pattern calls for either zippered pockets or patch pockets. I decided to make single-welt pockets on an angle for a sleek look.

I have been sewing this with my Singer Touchtronic 2001 using a walking foot. This has touchpad controls and was made in 1980. Another favorite machine!
Thanks for stopping.
