February Project – Muslin Paid Off

I am loving this muslin process actually. Wonder why I never did this before. Anyway, I wanted to show you the finished shirt. The only thing left was to make buttonholes and sew the buttons which I did last night.

Muslin Process

Full Review on PatternReview.com

Here are the techniques I learnt in this process
1. Button Band – love it. Any future shirts I make will have button band instead of the facing.
2. Puff sleeves – Also love them. So cute, so springy.
3. Collar and collar band – I’ve done this before. But next time I am going to find a better way of constructing. It gets easier each time.
4. Lots of alterations – Well not lots, but it was amazing how tiny little things can make such a big difference.

Now I am trying to figure out how many more blouses I can make from this pattern 🙂
