Here it is, the last muslin of the quarter! 3 cheers and hip-hip-hurrah, I have survived!
As a side note, I am publishing less of my patternmaking and more of my constructing to the web. While I am more than happy to share and teach techniques to others, I honestly want my patterns to be a secret. I want people to have to buy these bags, not look at my patterns and figure out how to make them for themselves!
The final muslin is a boot, based in part on the boot I deconstructed. I also further explored the moccasin styling, thus, this muslin is the farthest from any of my original sketches. There definitely need to be some resolutions with this pattern down the road, but it’s a good rough start that gives me something to build off.
There were some issues with the pattern when I began to assemble the pieces. Overall, I need some guidance with this pattern from someone more knowledgeable. Also, a leg form to drape on would be incredibly helpful, so that I’m not guessing shapes.
The finished muslin, at least as far as I’m taking it for now. I need to further refine the trouble spots, and therefore I didn’t want to use valuable materials to figure out further things (ie, drilling vial into the wedge, the lining, etc.) until I had the outer perfect.
