I am about to return to sewing from a lengthy hiatus … 10 to 15 years. When I started sewing — in the 5th grade — I had no fear and would tackle anything. Boy have things changed … and thus my call for help.
I have purchased Very Easy Vogue 8004 and beautiful charcoal linen. I have been pouring over my mother’s old Thread magazines and have been introduced to a whole bunch of new terms and concepts. I have never made a muslin before, however I’m about to with this pattern. Any pointers on ensuring that the final garment will fit beautifully? Once I make the muslin and the necessary adjustments, do I take it apart and use it as my pattern? Do I need to make any adjustments if I choose to make it a second time in a nubby boucle? Where do slopers come in? Are they necessary if you make a muslin?
Many thanks … m
