Moment of truth
So, I’ve just spent the past 2 hours perusing the net for pattern drafting tutorials, just to make sure I’m on the right track with my dressmaking approach.
Ok, I’m flying by the seat of my pants here. There, it’s out. (Oh I hope Analise isn’t reading this! – Don’t worry though it’s still going to turn out just great!! )
That’s not to say what I’m doing is wrong, but I can honestly say it’s certainly not the most….technically accurate way of going about things. LOL! I can now say I’ve learnt a LOT about fashion draping, and enough about pattern altering to understand that I should find a hip curve ruler thingy. I hope Fabricana carries them. It’s a larger curved ruler used in pattern drafting, a step bigger than a french curve.
Okay… back to my dress form to make some rather important markings.
