Recently I mocked up a skirt and jacket in muslin. The brown number on the right sans embroidery.
It looked awful so I put it in my sewing basket to think about it. Then Lyle cat slept on it and when I fished it out and put it on it looks perfect! Yay Lyle! Stunning use of felines in dressmaking. I'm figuring the muslin was a bit stiff and the kitty heat softened it up.
I've got this in my stash too. I'd love to make it stripey, just like the picture but I'm a bit scared of fabric with a nap. Bit more practice first!
