A little help please......

I have a fresh dilemma and I wanted to take it to the 20 of you. I want to make a floral blazer! But I’m scared.

Here is the fabric. I am obsessed with light blue this summer. I don’t know why. But I scored 4 yards from Wal-Mart of this fabric. I love it. You can tell I love it because I paid full price for it.


The pattern that I want is V1296. The pattern itself says that it’s hard. And it even requires some boning! It was even hard to cut out. I have B5619 It calls for 41/8 yd of fabric to my 4 yards, but I can cut the facings in a different color if I need too.



Here is my dilemma…. Should I go ahead and try to make V1296 or should I just go with the safety of B5619?



I suppose a muslin would help…. I hate doubling back, but I hate wadders too….

Damn!

Safety unless you muslin both garments to determine which one fits you better...

I think you should muslin and then make the one you really want. If you're anything like me, when I don't follow my first mind, I can't stop thinking about it. I can't wait to see your finished product.

I agree with the ladies. In this instance a muslin may be a neccesary evil. Looking forward to seeing which one you go with.
