It has been a long time since I've sewn anything non-doll related, so I jumped at the chance to join in on the Pattern Swap. I had the privilege to try out Muse of the Morning's Renaissance Maiden Outfit pattern. I have to say, I was so pleasantly surprised by the ease that this entire outfit came together and the fit is perfect!
I must admit I am not exactly the best when it comes to following directions or even reading directions, but this time I made sure to read thoroughly and do it right. It was easy to behave with this pattern, the instructions are easy to follow and not once did I look at a piece and wonder "what do I do with this?" That is actually a big deal, because confused and impatient is my most common mental state when I try to make clothes, so the fact that I managed not only a single item, but a whole outfit, is close to a miracle and definitely a testament to the awesomeness of this pattern.
My favorite part was installing the eyelets, it was a first for me, so of course I was bubbling with pride when I managed to pull it off the first time.
Lil is beaming in her new outfit and my boy's are now looking at me to get working on their costumes. I fear they might start expecting more planning ahead then my usual night before sew-a-thon, prior to our yearly Renaissance Fair weekend. To bad they wont wear dresses, 'cause I'd be set.
If you'd like to get your machine working on the Renaissance Maiden's pattern, Muse in the Morning has it on sale for 30% off now until the 30th!
