This ended up being a very simple project. I draped the muslin onto my dress form. My original intention was to drape this design with muslin and then use the pattern to make an entirely different top with different fabric. But the white muslin looked so nice I decided to take my time with it in order to include it in my Spring 2010 collection.
The fabric resembles linen so it looks more expensive than it really is. Working as a clothing designer in a tough economy is hard. I found that this was a great way to include a completely handmade garment in my Spring 2010 collection for under $25
I also made the skirt in the pictures :D
