Anyway, I am in the process of making the Elisalex dress. First muslin coming up:
So far so good. The bodice front fits ok. I have not made any adjustments yet, but I have a feeling the back might be a bit dodgy. I tried taking pictures to show what I mean, but of course, I'm not that skilled. I feel it gaps abit at the back. Did anyone else have that problem? Or is it just me?
For the skirt I cut a 14, but then realised I was being overly optimistic about my sizing. I think I might be a 16 for the skirt. Oh well, I need to adjust that, or just go with the gathered skirt. The only reason I made a skirt with this muslin was because I thought the bodice was too short. It is actually ok. Sits exactly on my natural waist, which is a first for me.
I don't know which fabric to use yet. Most of the suitable fabric I have are only 2mts, so a trip to Goldhawk road might just be what I need.
And now, for your eyes only, exhibit A, of my muslin documentation.....See what I go through for this blog?
