Among the multitude of options we have for acquiring the perfect fit, constructing a muslin falls pretty high on the list of essential skills. A muslin acts as a rough copy for our actual garment, allowing us to fine tune our pattern and make adjustments without damaging our desired fabric. It’s a great way to master your fit and also gives you the opportunity to try out any new sewing techniques required so your final garment looks perfect!

What You’ll Learn:
