Last week I sewed up my first bed-sheet Belcarra. The fit was a bit on the saggy side. Today I pulled out the pattern and another bed sheet to have a second go at it.
I tried on the first muslin and marked where the darts should be. Then I reassembled the pattern to its original state and transferred the new markings.
The darts are higher now, and a bit more sharply angled. I hacked and slashed and taped it all back together.
Since the purpose of this muslin was to work on fit I only cut out the front, back and sleeves. It took just twenty minutes on the serger to get this far.
I think I’ll push the dart up another half an inch and run up another muslin. Whew! The learning curve is strong with this one. But I’m getting closer…
