I finally made up the a quick muslin with Paco's pattern. I really like this pattern! Based on his hip measurements I had to add about 2 inches, and I split the pattern the way he suggests. I must have not added enough because the jacket while it closes with no ease around my hips it stays open as you can see in the first picture. Other than that I'm happy with how this fits me. I forgot to take a picture of the fabric I'm using, I'll show you next time.
I finished the Butterick dress so pictures coming soon!
