Well, well, well, it’s that time again! Time to make a muslin! We are reviving one of the first challenges we did after launching Sew Altered Style earlier this year and challenging you, our readers, to actually make a muslin and go through the fitting process!
With the hot and humid days of summer, we decided to focus on shorts this time around. I promise we will get to bodice muslins sometime this year, but we just love making bottoms!
So here is our challenge to you:
During the month of July, make at least one muslin of a shorts pattern of your choice, and post it in our Facebook group or tag us on Instagram for feedback and inspiration!
And we are launching the Make a Muslin challenge with a giveaway!
Make a Muslin Kickoff Giveaway!
Even though we all love free fabric and patterns, we wanted to give away something that would be helpful to the winner through the muslining and making process. With that in mind, we put together a prize pack for one lucky winner!
The Prize Pack:
- Your choice of eitherPants for Real People or the Complete Photo Guide to Perfect Fitting
- 6″ applique scissors, great for grading seams, and
- A Dritz jean-a-ma-jig, a very helpful though random sewing tool!
