"Almost" a Completed Great Coat Muslin

I did get most of my muslin for the coat sew along done this week end.

I decided I'd make Burda 7855 View B instead of Butterick 5145, and so far I am really liking it.

All I had to do tonight was sew the sleeves on... but first, before I start I thought, "I'll just check my emails and a couple of blogs, just a quick look".
Thanks to Belinda at Sew4Fun I'm hooked on Project Runway Australia. Every week she posts the next episode.
Thank You Belinda :)
So of course when I saw it on her blog tonight, I just couldn't help myself, I had to watch Episode (7) "tonight" - instead of finishing my muslin - but that's OK. I really enjoy the show and it's a great way to sit back and unwind after a busy work day :)
So I will post pictures of my muslin as sooooon as I sew those sleeves on :)

Have a great sewing day!

Well, I must be the last to do the muslin of her coat! I had better get my skates on. But tonight I might just have to watch PR - couldn't last night as DD has dancing and we watch PR together. What a good mother I am to wait for her.....

I'm glad you found some time to work on your coat! And I must check out those PR episodes!

Have a great weekend, Ann!

Ann .- I am glad that you found a little time to work on his overcoat. Because I am impatient to see the progress of this pledge. Many exist for this project. Hugs, Paco

Hello Paco and Welcome back from your vacation :) I hope you had a wonderful break!
I am also anxious to actually start the jacket. I am liking the fit of the muslin and will post pictures hopefully by tomorrow :)

Tany, I think you will enjoy the PR
episodes. It's amazing what some of these designers can do :)

Ann, it's good you found time for this coat sewalong project, I may do like you did - change the pattern completely, cause I am completely lost in grading patterns. I'am glad you're happy with your muslin, that's rather encouraging to go on with the sewing.

Ann Made Studio said...

Cafe couture yes you are right, it is so encouraging when the muslin works out :) hope you find one to start soon :)
