The muslin of my awards dinner dress S2724 is done. Here it is in living color and in super exposed flash color.
I can't tell you how helpful that little extra "how-to" paper from the Project Runway curve ruler has been with figuring out pattern changes. I think I'm going to have a bunch of changes, too. This review is going to be fun...
I'm digging into the fashion fabric tomorrow, which is pretty close in color to the muslin fabric.
Boopina's muslin (oh she's gonna love me) is underway, as well.
M5380. She's basically done everything herself. I had to take a few deep breaths as she first started using my machine. Normally, nobody touches daMomma's machine. Nobody. But she's doing great, and I really think she likes it.
Well, I know she likes the sewing part of it anyway. I think when she sees the finished product next week, she'll be hooked :)
We are both going to have the same pale turquoise crepe-backed satin. This stuff has been in my stash for over 4 years, purchased for a dress that was supposed to be worn to a tattoo convention (that's a blog for another day). I'm thinking of playing with the gloss/flat sides for the front panels of her dress and the ruffle detail and sash on mine.
The jacket is just going to have to wait, because I can't wait to get my hands on some loungewear.
