The muslin is done and on its way to The Big Apple
Complete with red and pink thread, one inside-out sleeve and placket sans cuff, and …
… one single-layer pinked cuff.
With all of those faults, this is still actually somewhat nicer than my usual muslins. Don't faint when you try it on Michael. The final shirt will be bee-you-tee-full. ;-)
An interesting side note: I took apart one of the sleeve plackets on my husband's discarded RTW shirt. This is what it looks like before surgery.
And this is after.
Hopefully you can see that there are no stupid "Little House on the Placket" pieces here,
and instead it's just like Summerset's wonderful tutorial. Although the finished RTW placket is somewhat wider, which is easy enough to adjust if desired. I'm going to use the RTW method any time I have to do a regular sleeve placket. It's just so much faster, easier and absolutely NOT fiddly at all. A total no-brainer, if you ask me.
