I finally have all my parts to begin construction on a new wool coat.
I am excited to jump in and just start cutting, but because I am 63 and no longer very aware of my body shape… I will start with a muslin, to get the right fit, before I cut the pattern out or take scissors to Wool. I can’t remember the last time I made clothes for myself. Perhaps it was as far back as my wedding dress?
I was very excited to be able to order my wool Melton from Mood Fabrics with a discount of 60% off! Otherwise the fabric alone would have set me back over $150.00.
I will begin the measurement taking and start the muslin process on Friday.
Do you sew?
If so, do you make a muslin first or just dive right in?
