After a couple of late night posts on my progress I have now finished the muslin. Here are some photos.
I cut out size 12 of the Crescent pattern. And guess what? It needs no alterations. I can't quite believe it myself as I have such an awkward figure for clothes. I have not hemmed it and I think for the final garment I will cut some extra length so the final length is just above the knee as above.
I was not sure what this fabric would look like sewn up. Yes it is too good for muslin (I have ordered some from Ebay as I am a muslin convert now). I got it from Hobbycraft and I'm not sure if it is a quilting weight fabric (which Tasia says is OK for this skirt). I also wasn't sure about the colour when I got it home. It turns out I love the fabric. After all my work in making the muslin I will be unpicking this and sewing it into a final skirt. I have an aqua green linen for my final skirt so I will be making that next.
I love the shape of this skirt. I can't wait until it's finished.
It's the long bank holiday weekend and I'm looking forward to it.
