This is a test run of the Kristen pattern from some of my stash fabric before cuttin’ into the good stuff (some beautiful silk.) I like making wearable muslins so when the first version turned out just way too loud for me, I dyed it with Rit dye (Denim Blue). Much better.
Alterations – slightly wider waistband, slightly longer and fuller skirt, did facings instead of linings because I’m lazy.
