The first muslin:
Pleated pants which I will make in a cotton drill for casual wear:
A bit baggy around the back, but I'll have a look at this issue nearer to making them.
Straight leg pants, perhaps make in a linen or similar:
The Burda pattern sized for petites was next - I just cut this out and made it up - it gave very little in the way of problems:
The last muslin was a Butterick pattern - I'm sort of looking for a suitable pattern for formal pants - it's starting to look like a case of I'll know what's right when I see it.
This pattern made up nicely over the bottom. I'll make it up in a cotton drill in the shorter length to see how it looks.
I do keep my muslins and patterns in order and stacked in a basket, so that I can easily find them.
I thoroughly enjoyed that bit of organisation and am discovering that with the benefit of hindsight and a bit od distance from the initial making of these muslins, that they are not as bad as I first thought!
