As you know I have a couple of Japanese sewing books and I love looking online to see if someone else has made/modified a project I would like to make from it. I have made a 'muslin' (like a draft version) of the T dress in a cheap voile from Lincraft before I use my nice material. I find the idea of making an unwearable muslin a complete waste of time. I don't think I will make a muslin for every pattern I make but since this is the first of my Japanese pattern book sewing I thought it would give me a better feel for what it is like. There are a couple of interesting posts on muslin's on Gertie's Sewing blog - how do you feel about making a muslin? I think we call Muslin, Calico in Australia! It is what I would be using if I was making an unwearable muslin!
