Since I haven't done any "people" sewing in a very long time (think years), I thought I'd try my hand at it. Taking a cue from other sewing blogs I've visited, I also attempted to make a muslin pattern. I fashioned it after a paper pattern I've had a number of years that I knew was too small.

|This fabric is a polyester, orange and purple tweed|
This project didn't go as well as I would have liked. As you can see I ended up putting a folded seam down the front. I'd had this fabric for at least 18 months. I was attracted to it by its tweedy look. The fabric ravels something terrible. I didn't bother to line it since this is an attempt at something I haven't done in a long while. For me sewing is not like riding a bicycle. I need to relearn this.
