I cut the second draft of my waistcoat muslin tonight, but didn't sew it because it got late. Hopefully soon, I'll have photos of the first and second drafts to share.

normally I wouldn't bother adjusting the pattern once I have a muslin; I'd just adjust the muslin and build from there. But I'm going to be cutting at least three waistcoats so I want to get the pattern right.

Plus: Seamly2D (open-source pattern drafting software) makes it really easy to dial in adjustments to patterns.


Waistcoat draft two. I think the math is right at this point, but I will make it up in a heavier muslin to check before I cut the wool.
