The Update:

The dress in not quite done yet. I have neck, arms and hem to complete.  Using the muslin made a big difference in fit and style decisions.  The fabric is fabulous!

I might do a small cap sleeve – not sure yet.

The Muslin:

After many, many years of sewing, I have discovered a new love of making a muslin first. This is a great way to get the feel of the pattern, make adjustments as you go all before toughing the fashion fabric.  I also helps a lot if I am between two choices of fabric.

The pattern is Vogue 8871 and the beautiful fabric from Mood is Digital Print Poly/Neoprene Blue/White/ Floral.
