    Wow, that fit is spot on! Did you need to make adjustments to the pattern or are you a perfect pattern proportion? I can’t wait to see the final dress.

      Thank you! I was pleasantly surprised to find out that a 60s 10 was just perfect fit wise! Starting work on the real deal soon!

    Impressive, MM. I admire anyone that takes the time to make such a perfect muslin. Sometimes I skip that step and I’m always sorry later. You are a shining example for all of us! :-))) Can’t wait to see the dress!
