Ugly

You’re probably wondering, what is that a picture of? I’ll tell you. Really, really ugly muslins. I’m sure you’ll agree, muslin making is probably one of the least gratifying types of sewing: there’s no instant gratification because you don’t have a wearable garment, it’s frustrating (especially if you have lots of alterations), and they are generally not very attractive (at least I use ‘old’ fabrics that I won’t intend on using later). However, this time, I had to bite the bullet and make not one, not two, but three muslins before I got the (significant) changes to the pattern and fit ‘just right’. Now I’m ready to whip out my silk chiffon and try my hand at a finished product. I can’t wait – those hot pink zebra stripes were beginning to burn my retinas!
