The third muslin was the charm. The front crotch hangs properly, the back is smooth. The waist is at the right height, the curve of my contour waistband is even and the band is an even width. I need to lower the left waist after I cut it out since the right hip is higher. The waist was a little too big, but with my hip curve just sewing it smaller at the side seams isn't a good choice. Instead I took slices front and back overlapping 1/8" at each cut to take in about a 1/2".
Now, maybe I can get some sewing done! I have some UFOs that I want to finish and then on to new projects.
We are going down to our son and DIL's in Roanoke, VA for Passover. It will be his first time leading the seder and I'm bringing most of the food. I froze the brisket(obligatory as far as Josh is concerned!), chicken soup and my favorite chocolate walnut torte. It is both gluten and lactose free! It's a good thing no one's allergic to nuts, or I'd be in big trouble. Josh and I will make the rest. We cook, and my dh and dil clean up. A good deal. We are also bringing Passover foods which are not available locally for them. Their synagogue ran a bus trip up to northern Virginia to shop but they have their own shopping service, us. We'll be back on Sunday.
Enjoy your holiday!
