Crepe Sew-Along #1: Cutting Out Your Muslin
Get out your pattern tissue and find piece B (bodice piece version 2) and piece C (bodice back). Cut roughly around the pieces. I wait to cut around my size lines until the pattern pieces are placed on the fabric.
Also trace dots and circles. I like to use the point of a large knitting needle to "color" in the circles.
Don't forget to snip your notches!
Here are the pieces, all marked and snipped.
Simply take your pieces to your sewing machine, and using a medium-length stitch (around 3 mm), sew 5/8" from the raw edges on all sides of your pattern pieces. Break the thread at the end of each line of stitching; do not pivot around the corners. Use a dark or brightly colored thread that shows up well on your muslin.
