You've seen my fabric, and now you want some progress? Me, too! I've been making muslins all weekend, which is pretty unusual for me, as I'm not one of the "you must make a muslin for every project kind of girl." I've totally embraced tissue fitting.
But that's a lot of silk and I want my MOB dress to be perfect (well, not as perfect as the wedding gown, but you know what I mean). I'm also angsting over my curves in places where I'd rather not have them, so there's that, too.
And the results, please. Well, no pictures here of the said (and sad) muslins, but here are the rejected patterns:
Butterick 4919. Rejected because I didn't like the center seam (fixable), the "halter" straps are too fabric-y (also fixable), and I didn't like the wrap effect (not so fixable). Not 100% rejected, but at least for now. Oh, and it also looks a bit boring on.
