This was the first dress I actually made a muslin prior to cutting the fashion fabric. This sold me on making muslins. It enables you to check fit and gives you the opportunity for a trial run with tricky techniques. Even with the fashion fabric, I carefully hand-basted the collar and shoulder before stitching on the machine.
