No, I haven't become an ice-cream seller. This is my muslin for Butterick 5145. I am pretty happy with the fit, it just needs a few tweeks. The waist is too low on me, it is supposed to be a raised waist, I also think it is a little big at the top. I have taken out the back pleat because it was just too big and unnecessary. I have also moved the pocket. I originally made the patch pockets but I thought they may look a bit cheap and the fabric I have chosen may be a little thick for them. I have just used the tabs in the waist seam. I am quite taken by this coat in the new Boden catalogue ( apart from the yellow buttons)
I am not doing any more to this at the moment, I am going on another sewing day in a couple of weeks so I am going to make it then.
I have also made a muslin of the boat neck t-shirt from the Sew U book. It is too big for me as I made the medium because lots of reviews said how small the patterns are in this book, however I think a small will fit better. The neck opening is also too large so I will adjust that.
This is going to be part of my casual mini-collection for the WIAW (wardrobe in a week) on Artisan Square. I haven't chosen everything yet but I have some striped jersey for this top and purple cord and grey flannel for two A line skirts from the Sew U book. I hope to make a checked shirt for my second top but I haven't found the right fabric yet. Preparation starts on Friday and sewing is the following week.
