Smurfette (my dressform) modeling the muslin.
Everything looks beautiful on Smurfette. Of course some fitting issues don’t show since she has no arms, and that might be how I missed this the first time around.
Unflattering mirror shot #1. (Yes, I wear glasses. Sigh.)

This is my second muslin for McCall’s 4994. The first version had really bunchy arms. I adjusted the pattern by making the kimono sleeve 2 inches smaller and (after looking at this now) need to add 2 inches to the waist. Adjusting it from 3/4 sleeves to short sleeves might have helped the issue with the sleeves some, but not by much.
