I made this black and white Laurel as a wearable muslin but I like it a lot!
I’m so happy I gave it a try .
I cut a size 14 according to the sizing table, but it was way to big. Some serious granny-alarm went of!
I made the darts in the back 8 cm deeper and took in the sideseams by 4 cm. I cut 15 cm of the bottom, because it was way to long.
I decided to draft and add my own collar, because I thought it was a bit plain without a collar.
