What I wear, when I wear it, and how it works on my bike
Today I finished the second muslin for a dress which is partly based off these drafting instructions and partly based off a tracing of the merino2 dress. The drafting instructions yielded an extreme A-line, sleeveless dress that wasn’t much what I had in mind.
Using the merino2 as a guide, I cut it down to about the right size and made a second muslin in a stretch fabric. I cribbed together various internet instructions and patterns from the box to make a sleeve, which still needs adjustment. But, considering it’s the very first thing I’ve ever made completely without a pattern, it worked out pretty well.
It’s a very simple dress to begin with, but I think it was a good effort.
For the record, I did not really get dressed today–just wore houseclothes.
