That brings me to my next order of business. I have to make a muslin. Especially with all the changes I will be making I HAVE to make a muslin to make sure everything will fit well. So, this is the skirt I decided to sew next:
I will be making a muslin of View C. It is the view with the pleats on the yoke. Yes, pleats. I am nervous about how they will look because pleats and I have not gotten along in the past. BUT--I am taking a chance. And I guess it's not too much of a chance since I am doing a muslin first. However, it doesn't help that all the reviews I have seen on Patternreview for this particular style are nice, but not many people have made View C. So it is a mystery to me how this skirt will turn out.
BTW, I decided to join a sew-along this year! I have always wanted to do one as a personal goal, and after reading about the Tim Gunn Sew-Along (click photo on right for link, if interested) I knew I had to give this one a shot. Of course I have to finish sewing my last two skirts before I fully participate (since I don't want to abandon my plan), but it will be well worth it in the end when I have a fabulously workable wardrobe! A lot of people are saying that this sew along will take them all year, but I want to finish mine sooner than that (except for the bigger projects). I will update about this sew along accordingly, and explain all the details much later.
I hope everyone is having a great week!
