Well, I have made my Crepe bodice muslin, and I’m not at all happy with the fit.
It’s a little hard to see from the picture, but it’s waaaaaay too big. I cut a size 2, which looked right on paper, but I will definitely be going down to a 0 for the bodice. What you see is after I had taken in the side seams to the 0 size, and it’s still too big.
It’s a little hard to fit it properly since the back doesn’t actually close without the waist tie, but I think the safety pin is more or less accurate.
Another problem is that the fabric (an old sheet) is probably not as drapey as my fabric, and the real fabric may look a little better.
I’m glad to see that Gertie has the same problem with the fit, and I’ll try her fixes to hopefully achieve something that works for me. And I guess I’ll, sigh, be making a second muslin.
On the plus side, I read through the instructions, and they seem typically comprehensive for a Colette pattern, and the dress construction looks pretty easy, with the exception of the facings, which still shouldn’t bee too hard.
