By the way, Justin says to me after he snapped this picture, "That sure seems like a lot of work for something you'll just throw away." I totally agree, and don't know how some of you do it for every garment!

Vogue 1150 - A muslin
Okay, just posting this to prove to you that I actually do make muslins on occasion. This fabric is a lavender cotton knit that I've had in my stash forever. I didn't know what to do with it since I'm not that fond of pastel colors, but it finally proved to be useful. I want to use my beloved turquoise wool doubleknit from a recent Denverfabrics.com purchase, but didn't want to take a chance on ruining the fabric if the dress was a poor fit. I cut a 10 on top and graded it out to a 12 at the hips and the fit is perfection. But scandalously short on me, and I didn't even take the 1" hem! I am 5'5", people. So I'll add 3.5" to the length and cut it out tonight. This should go somewhat quickly but does have a fair amount of topstitching. I'm super excited to get started.
