Simplicity 1621 – Muslin Vintage sheet

Hello again

I’ve just come back from a fitting with Mrs M

Simplicity 1621

Image

It is for a wedding in August, and is going to be made in Bubblegum pink linen…

Image

Isn’t it lovely…. I personally would never have chosen this colour, BUT I think it’s totally going to work with Mrs M. I think everyone knows what colour suits them. With the wool and button I’ve made a massive crochet flower….

Image

What do you think?!?!?!?

************************

So on to the muslin construction, I generally use vintage sheets to make up my muslin’s. They are pretty, and are easily bought from second hand shops AKA Thrift stores!

Image

As ever, when i’m cutting out a pattern I take over the kitchen table! We all do that?!? RIGHT?!?!

And here is Mrs M modelling the the font view….

And the back view…

So What alterations are required?!?! The pattern is cut out in a XL the bust darts are L and I have added 3/4 sleeves (They are from the jacket in the pattern) Due to the bust dart alteration, the shoulder straps are a mite too long also.

The real thing!
