Shrouds of Muslin

Today I draped for the first time. We draped the front of the bodice to our dress forms today.  Betty, my dress form, was lookin' special.  I so wish I had a picture of me doing this and getting all frustrated when I didn't get it correct the first time. My biggest problem was that my muslin wasn't grain perfect when I started, so there was a point when I had to take everything down and just realign the grain to fix it.

This is similar to Betty, but not her.
It is slow going now, I cannot wait for the day when making a pattern becomes more second nature and quicker.
