BWOF 02-2009-102, muslin

A quick update, I'm in a sewing mood. I managed the muslin tonight and was not disappointed. The muslin is a size 40, tapered down to 42 at the hips, but otherwise no alterations. The fit is good, though (as expected) a bit snug at the bust and the neckline a bit too low to be comfortable. I did an easy fba to add just a little extra room as described in the Palmer/Pletch book Fit for real people, made the neckline a bit higher and cut the fabric tonight.

This is a little beauty - looks great so far and I have to mark it down as a potential project :-)

I love it! That caught my eye, too.

Did you decide to line this, or make it more like a blouse?

So cute! I love that pattern as a blouse.

Sigrid, did you decide to line your jacket, or are you making it a blouse. I'm having trouble with the lining, particularly the front facing. I'm going to email you.
