Finished my Smart Shopper pattern by Sweet Treasures. Great pattern. Not sure if I would add both extra muslin pieces. It made it really thick. It is nice how it stands up though and you can’t see the inside fabric.
I ended up having to use a 100/16 titanium Topstitch needle when I did the French seam. A great learning experience with the French seam. You have to do the bottom like you’re putting on binding. You get to the bottom where you get to 1/4″ before the end, but don’t go over. Then you start the other side. Tricky the first time, but totally doable. I made the French seam larger than probably normal, but it was easier to go wider with such thick seams.
