I am restarting the blog as a craft blog to include knitting, spinning, weaving, sewing and brewing. Since I am working on bits of all of them through the year, I will put my updates here!
Today's sewing: fitting muslin for dress and fitting shell for pants.
The dress is from Simplicity pattern number 1419. It is a cute little summer dress. We have done numerous alterations such as neckline, waist, lengthen torso and increase hips.
Here is the front view. The dress fits pretty well.
This is the side view:
So, moving onto today's second project:
This is a pet tern for a pants shell. Why make this? Well, this will be the base pattern that I will use to base all of my pants on. When I got this pattern ($5.00 Vogue Pattern Sale) the largest pattern size they had was a size 14. So, I used some tracing paper to trace the pattern and today, I will work on the first set of adjustments that will be sewn in muslin (aka bed sheets). I will be making inseam, waist, hip and crotch adjustments for my measurements then sew up the pattern and see how it fits.
