Seams should be done in a way that they hold the muslin together but are easy to remove and redo. After some experimentation, I decided to tack the edges of my seams but keep a relatively long stitch length--3.5 on my machine. While the tacks were a little harder to remove when redoing seams, they kept the stitching in place. Tearing the muslin a littl is no big deal. The longer stitch length is easier to remove with a seam ripper than small stitches.
Cool greys transition from summer to fall in a shirt dress, flowing maxi skirt, and new jackets.
