I completed the bodice muslin for Vogue 2902, my ScarJo dress. I didn’t take photos when trying it on. I’m in such a hurry to get this dress done that I didn’t take the time. The muslin fit wonderfully. Such relief…
Then I learned a valuable lesson in looking at suggested layouts for pattern pieces on your fabric.
You might be able to see that this dress has a circle skirt. I’ve never sewn one and I’m very excited but what a fabric eater! The pattern piece says to cut two on the fold. From the photo you can see that the piece won’t fit on the folded fabric. By the by, this is my lining fabric. 🙂
With the fabric unfolded you can lay the pattern piece out. So, why even make me cut on the fold! Just give me a full pattern piece!
Anyway, enough ranting. Here is my bodice front.
And bodice back.
I love this fabric more and more. Hope I can get this done.
Ever have trouble with your pattern piece layout options? Do you read directions better than me?
