What materials did you use? Muslin so far. For fashion fabrics, I'm thinking the blue silk poplin with a silk print lining. The poplin is crisp and matte and I think it will make something that's plenty dressy, but not so fancy I'd feel overdressed anywhere. The silk just feels lovely and what a treat to have such a fun lining!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you're going to post your project online, remember to take a picture of the final fitted muslin before you rip it apart!

This going to be fantastic. The circle skirt gives you a lovely figure. Love your fun fabric. I think it will have a 50"s feel. Can't wait to see the final product!

Your dress muslin looks great. I preferred the fuller skirt also. Did you finish your dress yet?

The muslin does look really good and I do love the skirt. I have been contemplating whether to take his class, and one of the deciding issues for me would be over fit. I read your note that you had a friend help you with the fit. Does Susan provide any instructions on how to size the pattern and work on fitting tips in this class?
