Another idea I like, but I don’t think I’ll do. Thank goodness I’ve decided to do more muslins. I’m starting to like the idea of the extra step of doing one. Remember this lovely Burda 12/2011 #119 blouse?
Well, I’ll have to go looking for something else, because I don’t really fancy this. I honestly would never wear this. Even as a dress. I’m not crazy about the front pleat or the under bust bow. Such a cute blouse in the drawing, too, but not in my real life! And that neckline has been raised by about 3 inches. Maybe too much from this photo, but definitely necessary to avoid a wardrobe malfunction. >_<
Shoulders are too tight, the hem requires more width, and the side view is appalling. Jeepers. Sometimes muslin photos make me wonder what the heck I was thinking, or why I bother! Maybe I should make up a croquis. Although it wouldn’t have given me the full onslaught of the side view horror show.
