Another Muse Natalie. I love this pattern!
I confess to being the sort of person who hates those “10 Things a Woman Must Have” type lists. Although I love looking at pictures of capsule wardrobes for a specific reason (winter business travel, summer beach, etc), the idea that all women, in their daily lives, have to have a certain set of clothes really annoys me. And especially when these typical lists are so soul-suckingly boring (LBD, white button down, striped T-shirt, blah blah blah).
So if I have to sew a D, it cannot be fully B, and, as it turned out, it’s not so very L either.
I increased the length of the centre front skirt so as to keep the hem straight, but made no other changes. The centre triangle is basted to a woven material (not interfaced) for stiffness. And I hand-sewed on a matching triangle on the WS to hide all the seams. I also had to hand stitch the neck binding on the reverse side after attaching it by machine. Any attempt to machine stitch the binding to the WS resulted in a horribly wavy neckline. Probably because my jersey fabric was so thin!
Nothing more to say — I like it as much as my first one, despite obligatory photobombing by the Creature!
And just for fun, here’s how much the Creature has grown in the five months since I sewed my first Muse Natalie:
Oh dear, he looks quite tubby and stubby in this photo! It’s because his body is squished against mine, pressing it flatter and making it look larger.
And now, I sound like one of those dog parents! But he’s not tubby and stubby, I promise you! Here’s proof:
