This is the first wearable muslin that I made! Well, usually I make muslin from white cotton then I will throw it to the trash after fitting.
I am planning to make a long sleeve blouse for fall/winter but I want to try the pattern first by making a wearable muslin. I thought that the collar and the front plackets were not so easy to work.
As I only had 1.20 yards of printed chiffon inside my stash, I decided to make a sleeveless blouse.
For the pattern, I used burdastyle shirt blouse 03/2013 size 36.
As this blouse is wearable muslin and sleeveless, I omitted the sleeves, sleeves tabs, hem tabs, finish the hem line with an overlocker machine - rolled hemmed and sew me-made bias tape onto the armhole.

To create nicely sleeveless style blouse, I sew 7 mm self-made bias tape onto the armhole right sides together. Then turn the bias tape inside the armhole (wrong side). After that, I pin the bias tape and sew it around the armhole.
Here is the little tutorial of making bias tape by your self, bias tape tutorials
And before I say good bye for today post, I would like to share with you some photos that my husband took on Sunday afternoon while we are walking around the hill. Beside I wear my new sleeveless blouse for testing, we had a great time enjoying the nature.
