I've just found the waistcoat series (thank you so much for putting it up) and have decided to work through this before moving on to the coat series, as per your recommendation.
I have a question which relates equally to the waistcoat and to the coat drafting,I believe. What alterations to the pattern would you recommend for a large chest measurement, and comparatively small waist measurement, which is largely caused by a triangular back?
I have a 53" chest measurement and a 37" waist measurement (when I haven't overindulged at dinner). This is largely due to my back, but I also have a prominent chest that tends to cause unsightly gaping along the lapel on coats when buttoned up.
I've only just started watching the series, so I haven't cut any cloth, and it may be that it is covered in your system. But, I would be surprised if there aren't some requirements for extra darts or the like...
I've attached some photos so that you can see what I mean.
Thanks again for taking the time to create these great video series, it's really appreciated.
