Wow, it's been a long time since I last posted here!
So, I am trying to make a Beatrix costume (http://auronlu.istad.org/squidoo/bea...conceptart.jpg
for reference!) from Final Fantasy 9, but I'm having some trouble with the coat!
I started out making my own pattern, but I can't seem to make the back of the coat fit without bunching and wrinkling. I tried darts, but whatever I'm doing, I think I'm doing it wrong. Are there any specific ways to tailor a coat back (especially for a back with a lot of curve in it)? I really have no idea what I'm doing, haha.
Alternatively, if that doesn't work, I would also ask if anybody has a good pattern for a fitted coat/vest thing like hers! Maybe if I can't make my own pattern work, I can just use a professional one.
I know that's kind of a tall pair of orders, but I'd appreciate any help I can get. I'm a bit clueless!
