The making of the muslin.
The first fit.
This is the computer generated pattern.
Not too bad at all.
If I wanted a simple, slightly fitted dress this would be fine, as is.

Pinning, basting, stitching, marking.
Fitting the pattern to my wonky old bod.
Then unpicking it all to use it as a pattern.
Check out the different heights of those darts!

The silk satin frays when you breathe on it so I am cutting each piece, one at a time, the silk and lace as one.

These are proving a wee bit fiddly so I am basting them first and then stitching once I am happy.
It is all coming along nicely.
