Muslin, not a Muslin
I have tons of other sewing that I needed to start before I began this step. But I was itching to get a look at my pattern choice in 3D. I am refering to begining the muslin for my wedding dress. I could wait no longer to get a foot in the door. Everything is beginning to feel very real as far as wedding plans and seeing my dress bcome flesh is make that realness more palatable. I am recycling some old sheets as my muslin material - makes it a little more fun to look at may drape somewhat more comprabably than cotton muslin. My grandma would be so proud because I am actually basting my darts and seams. Granted, this habit is really necessary if this muslin will morph into my actual pattern. Still, this behavoir is something that I am usually way too lazy to actually do. I am really excited the more that I see this evolve, the more convinced I am that this dress is the perfect fetching choice. I hope that you enjoy this little fabric and thread treat, since I rarely show you sewn items.
