2013 Couture Project : Sewing the Muslin

Thank you for visiting!  If you are here for the tutorials, please click {here} to visit my Youtube Channel.  New tutorials will be coming October 2013.

I am currently working on and sharing my 2013 Couture Project, a personal sewing journal.  Feel free to join me:)

I finished sewing the muslin together and decided to pin myself for the first fitting.  It was challenging but here are the adjustments I made.

This is the muslin sewn together.  I still have to work on the ruffle hem for the skirt.  My next project day will be dedicated to getting the right hem length and creating the ruffle.

Before: Above are the pinnings for altering the muslin (add a side dart, bring up the skirt to remove wrinkle, new alignment for side sewing line)

Here you can see I added fabric to the neckline so I can make changes to the shoulder width.
