Project

Muslin Workup

What are you most proud of? Applying the lessons learned to vintage sewing patterns successfully. 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.

Q&A with Sew Craftful

Scheri Manson asked:
Oh I can hardly wait to watch your progress on your final dress. OMG those patterns are so nice :)
Sew Craftful answered:
I love vintage sewing patterns.
Sew Craftful asked:
Thank you-I love vintage fashions and I'm enjoying this class so much.
Sew Craftful answered:
@Shelley52. Oh, I hope so! It wasn't difficult at all. Once I got going it was pretty straight-forward.
Julie Eilber asked:
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.
Sew Craftful answered:
Agreed.
TanjaH asked:
This looks great!
Sew Craftful answered:
Thanks!
ambsews asked:
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.
Sew Craftful answered:
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.
