simplicity 1799, making a muslin

Quite a while back, I started making my daughter in Law a dress. My plan was to make her a dress and matching jacket. Well, somehow I lost the dress just before it was finished and the Project sort of was “forgotten”. (I have no idea where it went to. Maybe it got lost on my trip to Bergen back then, how do you loose a dress?).

Until today 🙂 I spent the day making a muslin of simplicity 1799.

I have had this pattern for a long time and finally; I have rediscovered why I bought it. It has great design lines and wonderful details. I am actually making a Version of view A right now, but I can see endless possibilities With this pattern. Can you imagine a nice silk vesion of view B?

Here is my wonderful daughter in Law testing her “mock up  dress” 🙂
