This is boring sewing with ugly fabric. But it’s all good, because, I have made some progress towards Felicity’s winter coat (keep saying that..keep saying that..).
The muslin is now complete (well, no facings, but I think that would be going too far). Photos of it are now up on the RTW sew-a-long flickr site for comment by the rest of the talented and much more experienced sewists and fit specialists.
The pattern is BurdaStyle 11-2007-115, size 40 with 4 cm taken out of the centre back. I wonder what other changes I should make to get the fit right? Hopefully the RTW Tailoring sew-a-long group will let me know!
I think that uneven hem is a camera trick or stance anomaly but I will check next time she puts it on.
She’s a sweet girl, and has put this muslin on and off quite a few times already, without complaint, but she gets a bit snarly when her pedicure is taking too long…
