I get to stay home from work today, so I thought I would make it a productive day. Nothing says productive to me like sewing! Today I'm going to make a muslin of 2365 and if all goes well, pick some fabric from stash to sew one up.
I've become a convert on muslins lately. Being able to tweak fitting issues before I cut into my fabric has helped me to have many more wearable items. Which temps me into buying more expensive fabrics than I would have in the past!
I believe I have a batiste I bought last year from Fabric.com floating around somewhere in a bin. My office/sewing area is painfully slow in coming along but the paint is finally up and I have some storage. I "should" really do some cleaning and organizing, but what I should do and what I want to do don't mesh today, and the sewing has won out!
It's hot and steamy here in Houston today, so this shirt is a good choice. I can wear it to work and have something casual, and I really like the dress option, since that's my preferred work attire. All of the options on this particular pattern appeal to me, and that's unusual. I really want to get a good fit since I can see this pattern taking me into multiple seasons (Houston doesn't really have a cold season for any of you who don't know, lol...)
