Muslin mock up for a final project. I liked it so much I am going to wear it. I upsized it (I am a size 40) by placing the front and back about 1/2 inch from the fold and added 1 cm seam allowances. For the actual project I plan on raising the waist line and maybe adding a little more width to reduce the wrinkling.
This was a good first project for sewing knits.
Slightly shiny knit – probably polyester – with moderate stretch.
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
