I was just over at the Coat Sewalong Blog and I noticed I posted my muslin a full week after the deadline. Woops- I apologize Marji!
And I have considered those sleeves a bit more- they are currently jacket-like in circumference. I would definitely need to make them bigger if I intend to wear this over heavier winter clothes. On the other hand, it might be nice to have a coat for the milder days.
To be determined.
And in the meantime, there is a sale on at Vogue Patterns, so natch, I went over there looking for ideas. And I found one! I already own Vogue 7942 and I think I'll morph this lapel & collar and front closure onto the Bernina muslin. OK, I think I am in business!
Thanks you guys for the positive feedback on the chiffon top. I was not sure at all. But I will pursue the slip dress idea. Bernina My Label has one of those too.
