|Maybe V1221 would have worked out OK if I could figure out a way to spend the day holding my dress in place.|
|Sorry for the blurry Myspace style phone photos. Sometimes it's not worth the trouble to get the camera out.|
I think the benefit of making muslins is that it gives me a good idea of fit (even thought it doesn't always work out - as in the case of Vogue 1221) and have a better idea of what I'm getting into with the finished garment. I didn't realize that the LiaLia dress is self lined and boned (I don't read the back of the envelope, just like I don't read the introductions in books) or that my b00bs would be hanging out until I put the muslin together. They're kind of mashed in and up, which I guess I should have picked up on in the envelope photo.
|See, it is a cute dress. Just not what I'm looking for right now.|
