Trial Run on the Red Polka Dot Skirt Pattern

This is the "muslin" test run of the Nautical Wardrobe skirt that will be made from the red polka dot rayon. I had a pretty good feeling about the pattern so I went ahead and did the "muslin" in a manner that would make it actually wearable. French seams. Bound hem. Beaded detail. I will make up the real thing in the next few days and get it posted. But here is the muslin. It's pretty bright, but I have a sweater in the exact shade of pink in the skirt. And then with a black jacket to tone it down...I think it will be do-able. In addition to the red skirt, I am also working on a white hoodie. I'm replacing the white lace-up tunic with a hoodie. It's more practical and less "costume-y." The hoodie probably has about 3 hours left on it. So I should have two more pieces finished by the weekend.
