I didn’t bother with the arms because I did a pin fit and they worked. I’m also skipping doing the skirt muslin even though it’s cut because the waist fits me here too. I have to say that I always think I could use another inch in the waist, but the marked waistline is hitting me at my waistline.
So, to me, the muslin fits. No gapois at the bust, fitting ease to stretch around, smooth through the center back and front. But, now that I see it in photos, I do see some bagginess in places. But, honestly? I kind of think that’s ok. I do think you need some room and I look at the dress on the model and I think it’s far baggier. Also, bear in mind that as this was my muslin, I can’t even testify to it being cut on the grain.
As a fairly lazy sewist, I’m open to second opinions. Does this fit?
