I'm working on my second Kwik Sew 3740 muslin. The first one I put aside when I realized I'd cut the collar and the top of the bodice too large. I decided to make things easy and simple and just start over; I'd already done an FBA and I didn't want to get confused.
This is definitely an iterative process. No pics until I get the pattern adjusted properly. I started with taking out 7/8". For this next round, I think I used the right waistline marking on the pattern and I've taken out 1 1/2". I can't wait to get into my cowl neck ponteroma knit top!
On a separate note, I thought I'd be getting my new sewing machine this weekend. Looks like I'll be putting that off for another month. I decided to stop working on Kwik Sew 3221 until I have more technology to help me with the slippery sheer I am using. Also, I was a little disappointed after I tried it on. I thought it would look great with this top; I didn't like the way it looked over the long sleeves.
It was completely God's grace that got the design centered! I gave that absolutely no thought when laying out the pattern. I've realized that not only did I have problems sewing the fabric, but I butchered it while cutting too. If you see this value fabric at Hancock, please give me a shout! I need two yards.
