Here is my wearable muslin and really, it's as perfect as I thought it would be!
this pose - trying to hide the remote behind my back... so dorky!
- I cut a 10 bust, and 8 waist/hips. Next time, I'll cut a straight 8 as I took in the bodice side seams about 1cm.
- Fabric is some *crazy print* rayon from Spotlight, it's nice to wear and the crazy print hides the wrinkles that rayon tends to get. While I decided I don't love the print after I bought it - it really is great for hiding all matter of kid-related-messes so let's just call it the perfect print.
- I used slightly bigger buttons than suggested - these ones from my local craft shop are giving off a fabulous 80s vibe.
- I followed along with the pattern instructions & sewalong - and they are great.
- Minor changes: the back skirt was cut with a CB seam because of fabric restrictions.
- Also I added a strip of elastic in the middle third of the waist tie (it's all hidden inside the waistband) to add a bit of flexibility & it just makes it more comfortable to wear. Here's a quick pic of what my waist tie looked like before I threaded it through. (basically I made two smaller ties, and a length of elastic)
- I made the skirt a tad shorter (?1 inch) but I'm a shorty (165cm)
