And so I've moved onto my next project in the meantime - the suit jacket to match the skirt previously made. I'm using a Burda pattern for the first time - Burda 7576:
Today I made the muslin. Following the book, I cut the front, side, back, under collar and sleeve pieces only and constructed it. I'm pretty happy so far; sizing is good (for once), darts and waist line in right place and lapel seems to sit well.
I need to make 2 adjustments only - first is to mark on the under collar roll line (Burda seem to have omitted this from the pattern) and secondly, eliminate the back peplum gathering and replace it with a pleat, which I think looks less homemade, what do you think?
