You worked out a lot of details with this muslin and thanks for sharing. I have this view cut out and will refer to your review. I agree totally about sewing the sleeves in flat and stitching the side and sleeve in one swoop!

I'm glad your muslin is wearable. Look forward to seeing the next one.

Your top turned out really nice. Glad you were able to resolve the neckline issue. I made this top and ran into the same problem. Fortunately, I made it out of a cheap knit for the first try. For the next top, I altered the neckline by tracing a smaller size and adding about 3/8" on the neckline at the shoulders. That turned out well and I really enjoy the top.
