Since I have narrow, sloped shoulders, and this coat has dolman sleeves ,I had to add light shoulder pads. I always make my own pads, usually out of cotton batting or fleece.This time I used one layer of self fabric and one of fleece.
I started with this as the pattern which I layed on the fold.
I sewed two darts as in this photo:
This is what I ended up with:
Then I sewed another dart as in this picture which also shows a smaller layer of fleece To avoid bulk, I merely cut out the dart shape in the fleece:
....and got this:
I sewed the two layers of the shoulder pad together pulling up on the fabric in front and in the back of the presserfoot. This shapes the pad quite nicely.
