Slopper in Progress

Muslin #1
To muslin #4 This has been a lot of work. Because of my swayback it took a lot of time and energy. I don't know what i would have done without my "hubby" , he patienly pin and unpin, take my photos etc. Today is my daughter's turn.

Being Thankful- I don't know wht i would do without my hubby. He patiently pin and unpin my muslin and takes my photos. Soooo, simce today is Super Bowl I decided to fix one of his favorite meals- Salmom in Lemon and Butter Sauce with vegetables and rice. Later when super bowl starts i am going to make some Maddddd fried chicken and fries with cake and ice cream. Oh well the thing you do for your family.

Done Burda 6727- The Coat

The Amazing Coat Sew Along- The Wearable Muslin I started this coat (wearable muslin) last year as part of the Amazing Coat Sew Along. In the end I got sick with the flu and was unable to meet the deadline. The coat was done, all that was left to do was to hem the coat, add snaps and large button. The alterations to the pattern was documented in my previous post about the coat. Thanks to my sewing sister I worked on the coat last weekend and completed it. I had to wait for my new photographer (daughter) because the hobby was fired. I did a forward thrust shoulder adjustment, and I did not rotate the sleeves cap. The folds in the sleeves were a result of not rotating the sleeves cap. the biceps need mores ease.The armholes were lowered, as you can see I need to adjust the armholes a bit more.

I use my TNT pants (Butterick5941) made a muslin, extended the front crotch length and tweak the fit in the hips. I use the muslin as the pattern to cut the fashion fabric. The fabric took me out of my comfort zone, because of the appearance on the right side (liquid silver) , however, it was a knit and it sewed like butterrrrr. Next was the blouse; I did a muslin, there was minor adjustments in the back because of her narrow back and a swayback. I did not do a swayback adjustment in the muslin, instead I did the adjustment on the fashion fabric when I sewed the center back seam (I learned the technique in a class…
