A light-weight and loosely woven fabric with linen-style weave but mainly made of cotton or wool.

Sewers speak of making ‘a muslin’ when they use a plain fabric to make a mock-up version of a pattern they want to try, as a kind of sample before they cut out and sew a final version in fashion fabric. The muslin is used to identify fitting issues and to make adjustments which the sewer then incorporates into their paper pattern.
In some countries/languages ‘a muslin’ is referred to as ‘a toile’.

    I am kind of new to this design. But once I read the details I would like to stitch a muslin of my own. The stitching method looks pretty simple and it will be nice if you can include some more images. Great work done so far. Thanks. title loans VA

    This is indeed a great design that will make even the dullest of all fabrics to look stylist and stand apart. It is not an easy method to learn, but with constant practice you would be able to design wonders with it.
