This is a muslin but I'm a pretty big fan. The fabric is from Fabric.com. I bought it December. It's a very orange-y tomato-y color. On the screen it looked a bit more like a true red. The hand of the fabric is wonderful though. It served it's purpose though and I have it in blue and grey too. This, of course, is KS 3790. There have been several reviews over at PatternReview.com. I've loved this pattern since it came out. I do like my muslin but I need to make some modifications. First off though, would this make a fantastic little black dress if it was 8" longer???
I usually make a petite adjustment on KS patterns to bring the armhole up but I wanted to try this out as is since I knew it was going to be a muslin. I also just used the facing that they recommend. I'm not sure if I will do that again. I much prefer this review by LynnRowe where she recommends to coverstitch it and screw the facings (my words, NOT hers!!).
The runching isn't as tight as I would like it. But, my second KS modification will tighten it up a little. I usually pinch out a 1/2" at the CF and CB.

Maybe tomorrow I'll document the alterations. I still have to show you my new sewing digs but at least I have Internet!!! Got it tonight. I live in BFE and they couldn't find any houses near me that had cables so they had to dig me a trench from far, far away.
I got all my new fabric loot too so I'll share about it. There are some big winners in there!!!
