My plan was to make a denim Meringue (which I posted about here). The sensible thing is to make a muslin first, even though I'm figuring out that my Colette-size is US16, so I found a piece of fabric in my stash wchich is really sweet, medium-weight cotton in cream and light blue stripes, very similar to the Meringue in the sewing handbook.
For the photos, I was also wearing my Midsummer Burda blouse, maybe not the greatest match...
(Excuse the massive pile of clothes on the right... :))
The adorable scalloped hem!
I'm very happy with this muslin and the pattern for sure. BTW, according to mum, who bought the fabric, it's from IKEA!
For my next version I will make two alterations:
1. Add 1-2 inches (2.5-5 cm) to the length, and I'll feel more comfortable.
2. Make FBA. NO, not a Full Bust Adjustment, but a Flat Butt Adjustment :), i.e. lengthening the back darts. My behind is quite flat which made the back darts stand out a bit, so i will adjust that next time.
OK, time to spend some time with my kids before bedtime.
Bye for now,
