What do you think?  

I got a new fabulous book called The Dressmaker's Handbook of Couture Sewing Techniques by Lynda Maynard. I wanted to practice some of those techniques on a wearable muslin. So this is what I made. I made a mistake on the neckline though because the gray band stands away from my neck right at my shoulder. I should have stretched it just a little  bit to make it lay flat. Now I know.

The Back

 

The neckline.

This is also the first time that I used a double needle in my machine. I have to say that I am now addicted. They are wonderful to have when you need to hem or top stitch on a knit shirt.

 

My next project didn't go so well.

Eh, not good.

I had a picture in my head. I wasn't able to make it like that because the fabric is a thin sweater knit and you can see right through it. But I am going to wear it anyways. I just need to make a few minor/major adjustments.
