Project Runway & Happy Birthday!
I'm really happy about the start of Season 10 Project Runway starting July 19th! I got so excited, you would have thought I was getting ready to go on the show!!! This is why...I was taking a little "looky look" at some things in my Pinterest boards when I came across this little number and thought...let's see if I could "make it work" as Tim Gunn would say! So I set out to create this pretty little flirty top without a pattern....
I started this process by creating a muslin. I used a yellow tee shirt cotton from my stash that I wouldn't be upset about if I messed it up. Once I got this all pinned, adjusted and cut on Ms. Thing (my dress form), I put the pieces on my cutting table on top of pattern paper and traced the pieces so that I would have a pattern to adjust. Well after an hour of trying to figure out how to put this together, I can say I did it! My muslin version turned out pretty good despite one small detail with the front ruffle...
...my ruffle should have come down under the breast on the right side!!! That's ok, this is a muslin and I will fix that on my real version! Despite that little misshap, I love it and can't wait to start on the real version! This is actually a very nice wearable muslin!!
It was a little windy out today and I couldn't keep the ruffle from flying up!
I like this top and think it would be really nice in a knit fabric with more recovery like a Rayon Lycra knit. This cotton knit was a little to heavy for this style, but I still like it and will definitely wear this muslin!
Also, today is my birthday and my hubby took me out to one of my favorite places...Red Lobster for King Crab!!! Yum, Yum, Yum me and my tummy are very happy!!!
Thanks so much for stopping by and;
