Lady Grey sew-along has started and I spent saturday afternoon tracing and cutting the pattern pieces (so many of them) and making muslin. I use corduroy as my muslin because it is similar weight to my shell fabrics. The muslin was sewn up quickly and of course I skipped a lot of parts, just want to see how it fit roughly. Gertie provides a pretty clear instruction on making muslin.
Here is my muslin (pardon the make-up less appearance)
I cut the smallest size and it basically fits well on the body. Area of concerns: the lapels are too big for my petite figure, the coat is too long and the sleeves are a bit wide although I can live with it.
What do you think? suggestions are welcome
