OOOPS!! Should have made muslin....

To do a make a muslin or not to make a muslin...that is the question!?! Well I just want to scream right now for not making a muslin! Since I have multiple fitting issues I should have known better, but nooooo, so now I have a wadder. "Just do it" will be my motto now as far as muslins go if I have any doubt about the outcome. I hate wasting good fabric. Well, this is the project, from my last post.The FBA turned out fine, but it is about 2" shorter then I'd like and it feels like it's going to fall off my shoulders, that just won't work for me. So I need to make the shoulder area wider and taper it down to the regular "V" neckline. I really like this top so I think I will try it again and this time test, test, test. One problem...I need some more pink fabric (I can't remember where I got this fabric) now since I'm making the pink skirt....not that I need an excuse to buy some fabric. So, I'll see what I can find and try again hopefully before summer's over. Well I guess I'd better get working on the skirt.

Happy Sewing!!

I know just how you feel. Most of the time I will make a muslin, if I haven't sewn the pattern before or if I am unsure about it. But there are times that I just go for it so I've had my share of wadders too! Be of good cheer!

Heyyyy, I know exactly how you feel. Oh well. it sounds like a great reason to buy fabric!

No worries---wadder's happen. I've been there right with you. I'm looking forward to seeing your skirt.

Ypu're not alone. I did the same thing this week. And I know better. I'm going to adopt your motto. Just do it.

That's exactly what happens to me when I skip the muslin part. Every time. Lessons learned!

I hate it when that happens! Sometimes I get impatient, too.

I like Victoria's answer...especially since I don't do muslins! I'm sure you will find more pink fabric and make an outstanding new top!

Sheila said...

Sorry your top didn't work out and like Victoria said more reason to buy more fabric.

I'm so glad I'm not alone in this, LOL! And I really don't need an excuse to buy f, fabric but it sure feels better when you have one. Actually I have a couple ideas (in my head anyway) to save this top, so we'll see how that turns out....more later.
