I'm so excited to have finished my Lonsdale muslin already. Here's a picture of how it's looking so far.
How lovely is the Lonsdale? I'm a bit late to the party with this one. I bought the pattern in the pre-sale and wasn't inspired to make it last summer with everyone else. Well, I've now been well and truly Lonsdaled and I can't wait to finish this one. There may even be multiple makes like my Crescent skirt!
I traced out the pattern last night. I did the size 12 straight with no adjustments. The only adjustment I needed was to the hips and the lower part of the skirt. I've taken in this area by about an inch so the skirt is a bit less flarey. I just need to transfer these adjustments to the pattern pieces and I'm ready to go. Obviously with the muslin I didn't do the duplicate facings for the bodice and waistband pieces. There is a little bit of room there so I hope it works out out.
There was a funny moment when I was trying it on. I forgot that you knotted it at the top! I was wondering why it looked odd for about two seconds until I remembered!
I know others have said this but this is really easy to sew up. Lots of straight lines. Best of all it has no darts! I don't know why but I hate sewing darts.
You've probably heard that Tasia is about to release her new pattern - the Cambie dress. I got the email about it yesterday. I was going to sit the Cambie out but today I have changed my mind unsurprisingly!
