Remember how I ♥’d this skirt in the December Burda?
Well, I made up the muslin yesterday (sz 40) and it fit! Here’s a pic of my muslin.
I can’t believe it but I actually understood all of the directions on my own without any help. It’s a 1.5 dot pattern with 1 dot being the easiest, hence the title of this post. It went together pretty easily. I hope making up the fashion fabric goes even better.
I pre-treated the fashion fabric (the grey one) by steaming it with a wet towel in the dryer and cut it out last night. I have two yards left I think, in case someday I want to make a matching jacket or a dress.
Today, while Jack is napping, I’ll try to sew most of it. I am adding a lining using a method from this book, “Easy Guide to Sewing Linings,” by Connie Long. It sure sounds easy. Let’s hope that’s the case.
I hope Jack takes a long nap! 😉
