WooHoo! I’m back! The switch from Apple to Linux has gone much smother than I was expecting. I’m quite happy with my new machine and I LOVE my new mobile device. I’m sure most of my Android love has to do with the fact that my iTouch was a first generation one, so it had no phone, couldn’t support a lot of the new apps or app updates. But enough with the technical stuff, on to the sewing!
Today’s FO is Vogue 8728. This is part of Vogue current “Vintage Vogue” collection. I started off with low expectations. Who wants extra fabric on an already large bust?!?! I am, however, in love with the peasant dress look and the fitted midriff seemed like a good way to have a flattering peasant look. My first muslin was a bit small, but instead of going back to the drawing board, I decided to dig through my stash for a suitable knit. This rayon jersey is a modern print, but seems to work. I’ve tried this with modern shoes and white socks and saddle shoes and both are fine. If I could find more vintage looking prints, I’d make a ton in jersey. I’ve decided to hang on to this muslin and label it “for knits”. I’m still working on a woven muslin.
