Whew! I'm glad I'm finally finished with these. Towards the end I didn't even care what the stitching looked like. I finally had to glue the seams together with doublesided tape made for that purpose. I'm glad I didn't cut into the good stuff for a really intricate skirt I have planned for it. The purpose of trial muslins is not only to work with a pattern (this was tried and true) but with fabric (a bear, frankly).
