Wearable Muslin

After making Simplicity 4302's collarless jacket, I decided I would make one with the collar. This pattern includes different cup sizes. I used a dotted lightweight cotton denim as a muslin. Well, it turned out to be a very wearable muslin. 

A one inch decreased adjustment was made at the back-waist.
I would highly recommend this pattern because the collar is constructed with two pieces. I have never made a collar like this. It was so simple that it feels like cheating. This is my new favorite blazer pattern.

    1. I didn't think this fabric would look good in pants or a jacket, but is matches a lot of my pants.
