I am actually sewing a wearable muslin. I am using size 36(30 inch waist) and adding 4 inches to the length. The material is from my stash. I am using some cocoa colored polyester material for the slacks. If I like the slacks, and want to continue, I will find something to make a muslin for the coat from. Once the muslins are done, I have some beautiful lightweight-gray wool-blend material to make both. Of course, all my material and zipper are from the thrift store.
I copied the pattern to tissue paper Saturday. I cut out the material yesterday. Today I started sewing. I am using my Brother XL2600 for this project. The zipper-fly is the first to be sewn. It turned out quite well. I followed the directions exactly.
In other news, I could not help myself again. This was a Goodwill purchase. Since my first name is Wilson, I could not pass up my namesake sewing machine.
It purrs like a kitten. It is made by White. That is all the information I could find. I have no idea who Wilson was. A department store? A man wanting a sewing machine named after him? It is a mystery for now.
Thanks for stopping.
