My pictures are horrible but here are a few of my progress pictures.
|completed muslin- too long but I'm happy with the just below natural waist fit that is the Meringue's style.|
|The directions tell you to make a paper template for the stitching line on the hem facing. |
I just marked the stitching line directly onto my pattern piece and then marked it on my pattern with my carbon marking paper & tracing wheel.
|I had traced my pattern pieces onto freezer paper so I was able to just lightly iron it to the fabric, then cut around them with my rotary blade. Worked really slick, IMOP.|
|Here is a pic of the length I added but then I took it back out once I finished the muslin. I'm short but with the original length the hem will be at my knees which is as short as I make anything.|
The muslin came together very easily but I do need to be very careful when I stitch the scallops on my final skirt, that is the touchiest part. I am looking forward to my finished skirt and hoping I can pull it together in an outfit.
Hoping you all had a good weekend and Blessed Be.
