Featured in the PR book!
When pin fitting a muslin, use safety pins. As you achieve a fit that you are pleased with, close the pins in that area. Your alterations will stay secure and you have a sure mark to tell which areas are fit. Areas which need further 'tweaking" remain open and ready to be easily changed.

I feel much better about taking a muslin on and off many times when I know that the pins are secure and I'm not in danger of becoming a living pincushion!

I should have read this a few days ago when I sewed a sloper for my elderly 81 yr of mother. So good, thanks
