Dress Muslin

Earlier this year I came across this site on pinterest: chevron dress


I loved this girl's style and have followed the blog ever since I found it. I really wanted to create my own version of the chevron dress and ordered this fabric from etsy: chevron print. I later found this one and think it may have worked better- but mine will just be a different color scheme. Another chevron stripe. I decided to make a muslin before cutting into the chevron fabric. So I dug up a blue fabric from my thrift store stash and this pattern:butterick 4443

Here is my first go at it. Overall I like the dress but the bodice is too big and I want the dress a tad longer. I need to make some adjustments and see if I can get the fit issues worked out so I can begin the chevron dress in time for summer. Hopefully I will have a completed dress to show you soon.


(Sorry for the horrible pic...I had to darken it as to not scare you with my paleness :)
