What advice would you give someone starting this project? I haven't finished the entire project, but it helps reviewing the course in it's entirety prior to actually starting-simply soaking up what's going on. It made it alot easier to apply lessons to the patterns I wanted to actually use. Now, I believe I can successfully construct a muslin of any garment using couture techniques at will.

Oh I can hardly wait to watch your progress on your final dress. OMG those patterns are so nice :)

That is going to turn out really cute - how hard was this?

@Shelley52. Oh, I hope so! It wasn't difficult at all. Once I got going it was pretty straight-forward.

Looks like it's going great so far. This is a good class for vintage patterns because Susan's muslim process demystifies the whole thing.

I have about 50 vintage patterns and I have been afraid to try them, but now that I have started the muslin process, I think I may try one of my vintage patterns. It looks like it is working great for you! Cannot wait to see the finished product.

Oh you must! They're so fun to work with and in many ways so much easier. It would be a pity to let your vintage pattern sit around unused. :). I'm also taking the Classic Tailored Shirt (using two vintage patterns)-hopefully over the weekend I'll post a few pics.
