Moulage prep


Oye. Sometimes my timing is really off. I thought I had a fairly clear calendar when I signed up for the Birth of the Bustier class, but life has intervened and I am way behind. Today I finally managed to draft the moulage pattern based on my “bustier model” Jane’s measurements and the Kenneth King”Moulage” DVD. The purpose of this process is to create a  “zero ease” fitting garment.

Here are the pattern pieces from the moulage draft above cut apart on the princess line seam:


And here is the muslin, cut with 1 inch seam allowances, marked, and ready for stitching together:


Tomorrow: stitch this baby up and have Jane try it on. Perfect any fitting issues, and establish the bustier design lines on the muslin. Maybe even start the bustier construction! 

Happy sewing!
