Muslin # 3

I think the fit is just about right.  I added a bit to each of the back pattern pieces by splitting the pattern down the middle and guesstimating.  LOL.  Did you know that guesstimating's a sniglet? You don't hear that anymore.

Here's how the fit looks.

That little bit of wrinkling comes from not snipping the underarm allowance.  And here's the back.
Much better don't you think?
I'll be working on the pants muslin this week with Claire and then I should be able to tackle the fashion fabric and get this project done!

Oh and I spent yesterday afternoon creating these fabric labels with my embroidery machine and its related software.  I'm going to go out to find a lighter color grosgrain ribbon for lighter colored fabrics.  I'll be attaching these on all the new garments I make.  
 Like me; a little fun and a little heirloom with bullion roses. LOL.


  1. your top is really coming along nicely and I love your new labels - I am trying to design myself a new label - I don't like my old one - got the design now just need to get it into the machine

    1. Thanks! I taught today and I'll get to sew on my top tomorrow. Oh, and get fit for the pants. It's all starting to come together.

      Good luck with your label. Let us know how it turns out.

  2. A big improvement. How lucky are you to get to spend time with Claire? Great labels.

    1. Thank you. I agree; Claire is great isn't she?
