Inverness Cape: part 1

in the last week i've finally got around to starting my inverness cape a project i've been planing for servile months. I drafted my inverness using Shep's reprint  of (The Handbook Of Practical cutting 1866 by Louis Devere)  Since Devere's inverness cape isn't very form fitting, its very easy to draft.

This fashion plate was my inspiration for this project.

Devere's inverness cape draft.

the three photos below show the inverness after i basted it together. 
everything seems wright so i will proceed by deconstructing the baste and starting the construction of the plackets and pockets. Im using blue wool melton as the fabric for my inverness.
