Vintage Sewing

Butterick 6927

This is a test muslin, or it was supposed to be, for an upcoming wardrobe contest on  I’m planning on a 40s/50s wardrobe consisting of 5 tops, 4 skirts and 1 coat.  I will be using one repro pattern but the other patterns will need to be resized.  This pattern is size 18 bust 36.  Luckily it didn’t require much altering, just extra added to the side seam allowances.  Because it looked easy, I decided to cut into some good quilting cotton.  I will make the contest version in silk.
