I’m wondering if anyone has some advice or experience in adding body and sleeve length to the Whitney pattern.  I’ll probably need to add 1-2” to each.  This was fairly straightforward on the Kinsman that I completed, but with the baffles and pockets, I’m more tentative.  Also, I’ll probably make a cheap fabric version first to make sure the fit is to my liking, does anyone have a feel for how much shorter that final jacket might seem after the down has been stuffed?

Thanks for the advice!
