The Tunic Bible Dress finished

I so wanted this dress to be fabulous , but I'm not sure . 
I spent lots of time fitting the muslin. But then had to fit lots more on the dress. I think it still is too big in some areas & not as flattering g as I thought /hoped it would be. 
I wore it to a party last night , but I'm not sure what the issues are ? 
It is a stretch woven I got at Mood a few years ago during an NYC visit. I lined it with a mesh as I didn't have enough fabric left to make the binding & collar the pattern suggested . 
I love the print & fabric , but just not sure it's the right match of fabric & pattern style .
 I'm giving the Tunic Bible another try with something's no lighter weight . 
Happy Sewing 😍

Tunic Bible dress in progress - Sewing Workshop workshop

Last Friday & Saturday I took a blouse fitting & knit workshop with Linda Lee from 
the Sewing Workshop. She is such an engaging & fun teacher . So helpful & knowledgeable. 
This week I finished my Gourmet Sewing club project from March -the Camden bowl/bag. 
I had to use a lot of glue in places where the suggested hand stitching didn't work . 
Th bottom picture is my almost finished Tunic Bible dress. I've had this stretch woven for a long time . I like the dress very much. I made a muslin first but had to tweak the dress as well. 
It's almost done -I had hoped to wear it to a luncheon yesterday, but my new goal is a party Saturday night. 
Happy Sewing 😍

Tunic Bible Muslin & Easter Embroidery

Busy sewing week !
 I finished this Easter Bunny table runner . It was a Sweet Pea Embroidery design . I've also been working on & have fine tuned my muslin for a tunic from The Tunic Bible . 
I had hoped to make a tunic dress for Easter , but the muslin took longer than I thought. But I wanted to make the muslin work correctly to hopefully save time the future ! 
I've only made one other muslin in all my sewing years , but feel this important step will take my sewing to the next level. 
I also had Embroidery club this week as well as Gourmet sewing ,oh , and also CCS charity sewing . 
I almost have last months Gourmet sewing project done . I didn't opt to make this months as I didn't want another unfinished project 😜 I also didn't make the Embroidery club project, but bought the pattern as I  Thought it was very cute . 

Happy Easter, Passover or other holidays you may celebrate! 

Happy Sewing
