Anything But Ordinary -- Muslin #1 Wearable!
Louise Cutting's pattern called "Anything but Ordinary".
I finished my FIRST muslin of the top (in green) today. Can you see on the shoulder of the green blouse -- the one on the girl -- that there is a tab? I never noticed it. It is a really fun part of this blouse. It actually is about the ONLY part of the blouse that I kept.
Changes I made:
I added a Upper Round Back and Sway Back correction. I have to do that in everything I make. That is why I sew. Garments that fit are so comfortable to wear. I HATE a garment I have to fiddle with all day long to keep it where it belongs on my body.
Neckline -- Made it a "V" instead of a circle. I don't look good in round necks according to my Mother. Pardon this dumb pose. I never know where to put my hands so I don't cover up the blouse.
Hemline -- I didn't like the maternity look I always seem to get in LC's patterns, so I added 2 pleats to the front hem.
