The Long-Awaited Fabric

If by long awaited you mean approximately one week. I'm very excited that it arrived, BUT as soon as I got it I realized that with such expensive fabric, and the design changes I am planning (lining it when the pattern is unlined, and changing the front facings) I should probably make a muslin out of some cheap fabric first.

So I will probably do a cheaper version first, but I hate to. Because my wearable muslin will be lined in cotton for a spring-weight jacket, and the good fabric will be for a heavier jacket, and it's cold NOW. It won't be warm enough for a thin jacket for a few months. I'll be doing it all backwards!
