Darling, I must give you a peek.

Let me start by thanking everyone for the lovely comments on my new little pincushion venture.

So I thought I was done with Darling, that is, until I saw some photos my husband took of me wearing the muslin. There are some slight wrinkles in the back and bagginess around the oddly positioned darts. I will share the photos once my Internet cable gets fixed (shakes fist at Virgin Media).

But I do have this wee Instagram photo I can share to give you an idea of how it came along. It’s not perfect but totally wearable. Wheee!

I have definitely made progress from my first muslin. I’ve updated my pattern pieces with my most recent changes (more back ease, moved darts) and I’m ready to make my final version. I am still nervous about it. I think it’s because I’m still doubtful about my fitting and pattern changes. Oh well. Going forward and promise to learn as I go.

With no Internet I am hoping to sew plenty. But after my fitting issues with Darling I think I will definitely whip up a few easier garments.

  1. It’s looking good, well worth all the fitting stress. I’ve just finished a dress that took ages too, so am also looking for some quick and satisfying projects next!


  2. I think it looks amazing! I’m impressed. In the event of an apocalypse, you will be wearing cute stylish pieces and I will have to resort to a blanket and burlap sack. Although I have no idea where I’m going to find this burlap sack.


  3. Yay, excitied!!! I’m just starting my muslin of this dress. If you are uncertain about your changes, why not knock up a 2nd muslin just in case? Wish I’d done that with my Peony. Might save you possible heartbreak later.


  4. Great photo! Great outfit! And glad to hear that you’re getting closer to the fit you want 🙂

    Want to tell you I did a fair bit of sewing last week, using my adorable pincushion from you!


  5. Beautiful dress! I’m glad you were able to get through the issues… this always helps our sewing confidence and makes us better in the long run 🙂


  6. Holy smokes, that’s adorable! I love the color and style very much 🙂 I found your blog through House of Pinheiro and I just love your style!


I'd love to hear from you
