Hi everyone! Like some other people on this forum I would just like to introduce myself. I'm Isaac, 19 years old (will turn 20 this year) and I'm from/living in Sweden. I'm currently taking a general sewing education as well as having a part-time internship/apprenticeship at one of the few tailoring shops remaining in Sweden. I'm excited to be part of this community to learn and share experience with all of you.
I also had a question about shoulders. I'm planning to make a coat to a close friend of mine this summer. However he requested a coat with softer, more natural shoulders. I assume I should remove the shoulder pads but should I also alter the pattern from the beginning? How should I deal with sloping shoulders with regards to the balance of the coat?
