My Wearable Muslin - McCalls 5816 Trench Coat
Okay this muslin was always going to be wearable. So I made it in black and I lined it in black and I used bias tape to finish the seam in ...black. So it is hard to photograph. I don't love this muslin but I learned a lot and I figure that has to be worth something...so my next trench coat - the real deal - will be in a great stretch cotton-poly blend with rayon lining. Oh, and it will also be a different pattern - Vogue 8884 - with the trench coat features added. I've just got the next season of Call the Midwife, so I will be sewing and watching this weekend.
