Or call it Deja Vu, except I think I’ve used that title before. I did get the muslin cut and sewn together for my summer dress since I last posted for ALYOF (a lovely year of finishes), so here is the unvarnished truth.
The fabric is a traditional quilting cotton that I bought when I first started quilting and didn’t know my style yet. Based on my high bust measurement I cut out an 18 then added 3″ full bust adjustment. I added to the centre panel and ended up with weird bunching which I have pinned out for the picture. I want to try this panel again but I know I need the added width in the centre front without increasing the neck size. As you can see, I also need to add more length to the front. I blame the flabby belly on the fact I had umbilical hernia surgery when I was a baby so I have a tight scar under my belly button.
In case you haven’t seen before, here is my real fabric. Linking up my June goal to Melissa at Sew Bittersweet Designs.
