Pattern Runway Drop Waist Shirt Dress. I haven't sewn a Pattern Runway pattern before so I'm interested to see how it makes up. I am always in love with the versions by Jolies Bobines, so I'm feeling positive.
Normally I'd just cut right in, even with a pattern I haven't used, but this time I'm going to try a muslin first. Inspired partly by my love for the fabric and by Kenneth D King and all of you who make muslins, I thought I'd try a bit of slow sewing and as I have plenty of this check fabric in the stash, I thought why not?! I'm not intending to finish the dress in the check fabric, at least not yet, but will just use it to confirm the sizing.
And in other news, I took the Dart Manipulation course on line at Creative Bug last weekend. It's short, but I found it really helpful. So armed with my new confidence I undertook this afternoon to fix the darts on my Laurel. Hooray!! I fixed the darts.... but sadly managed to burn the dress in the process. I'm not sure how I did it...the first I knew was when I tried it on and felt the shoulder. Oh oh :(
