Clever folks will remember Sarai sneaking in what I think was an early version of this pretty dress during last year's Spring Palette Challenge and there are so many lovely versions in the Colette Patterns Flickr group, one can't help but be inspired!
We so enjoyed having Sarai, Meg, and Oona join in the fun last month, that we are definitely doing it again this month! We have some lovely people in mind, but if there are ones you would love to hear from, please let us know!
This week kicks off the first step of the process: the muslin. I don't plan on making a full muslin of the Licorice dress, due to its forgiving fit; however, I plan to make a muslin of the bodice and sleeves, just to see how the modifications I make work out.
Do you plan on making a muslin? Are you making alterations to the Licorice or sewing it as-is?
