Last month when I made my Flora dress I made a wearable muslin first from a weird huge kaftan thing bought in the fleamarket.
And with the leftover fabric I decided to make another (hopefully) wearable muslin for the Maritme shorts from Grainline Studio. i.e. a MATCHING shorts and dress combination. YES PLEASE.
“Can’t wait for my matching shorts!”
However, while the dress muslin is perfectly wearable, sadly the shorts muslin is not so wearable: they just don’t fit at all, far too small! So it’s back to the pattern for some adjustments and a second attempt (at some point).
Despite the fact that they don’t fit the sewing itself went well and it was really interesting to sew a totally different garment than what I am used to and try and decipher the instructions for new techniques. And at least now I know how to sew a fly!
“Booo, no matching shorts just yet!”
