Altering a Kiton is a pain in the arse.
I know because I had to take in a coat at the shoulders and side seams (including vents). Light weight fabric and terrible sleeves make this very hard.
Valentina did a great job...

Just wondering since the coat fits the dummy nicely- how does it fit the customer? The body of the dummy can be very different than who is going ot wear the coat. And dummies are not all the same either, so on other dummies a misfit. It looks nice on that dummy which doesn't mean anything. How does it look on the person to wear it? That's what matters.

The way how it fits the customer is indeed imo the most important thing, so that is way I alter the dummy according the body of the client. So the dummy is the body of the customer.
