Kwik Sew 3629

Count Pepula

Pepper now has his Halloween costume in the bag! I’m pretty proud of it, even if it doesn’t look amazing close up, because neither does it look horrendous. All in all, I’m pleased with it, and glad I made a toile/muslin first.

K3629
Size Made: S with size M neck & chest strap.
Made For: Pepper
Tools Used: Sewing machine, point turner.
Notions Used: I used Vlieseline H 250 / Vilene H 250 / Fliselina H 250 to fusible interfacing to stiffen the collar, and four nylon cable ties instead of boning. The cable ties worked really well, since they aren’t doing much more than stiffening.
Changes: I made a muslin using some cheap cotton from Ikea, which made me realise that Chesty McFattyChest needed bigger straps than the size S provided.
