Here's the second muslin. We're making progress!
The bodice front fits perfectly. (The linen we're using has some stretch, but this muslin doesn't.) We decided to nix the pleats and stick with gathers. But now that I'm a pleating fool, there will be a pleated skirt in my own future.
One more tweak on the back bodice.
Hopefully the next post will involve a hot 20-something in a red linen dress!
