Last night I cut the fabric for my walking jacket mock-up. I had juuuuuuuuuuust enough, even though I bought exactly what the pattern said to. Granted I cut the collar and front lapels out of the same stuff, when for the real thing they will be cut out of a contrasting, different fabric, but still. There's a reason why I usually buy a yard of extra for errors. orz

The jacket will be the most ambitious of the three things, needing a lot of tailoring. It's meant to go over a corset, of course, which I don't have, but apparently a good shape can be gotten anyway. Making corsets is my next stop. Maybe then I will open a shop like everyone and their mother. 8Db
