Dress Like Your Grandma Making My Muslin

| No Comments

I started the muslin.  I now see why the fabric was only $4 a yard.  It will hold up for awhile.  I think.  Here's the neckline without the facings.


Here it is done and with the embroidery I hope to do on it.  The facings were easier than I thought, so I feel good about that.


I also embroidered on one of the pockets this morning.  It looks rough, but I think I'll get the hang of it.

Before I get started, Silence Fallen by Patricia Briggs came out today.  I am going to try to NOT read it in a day or two.  Trying to distract myself...


I have decided to take part in the Dress Like Your Grandma sewing challenge.  Here is a photo of my great grandma.

I have failed already in my attempts at my sewing goals this year so far.  I have made some stuff, but... So here is my version of the Hawthorn Dress by Colette Patterns.


I am starting to make some items to donate, AND getting ready to join the Dress Like Your Grandma Sewing Challenge!  Yay!
