I followed the directions from the book and started by drawing CF and CB lines down a tight fitting tank top and leggings. I added bust points and a piece of elastic around my natural waist as a guide. I had help drawing dots and lines on my neck, back, and shoulders to complete my human dressform look. My helper measured anything I couldn't measure myself. 39 measurement points with some having 2-4 different measurements. It took a while, but we just finished. I'm excited to start by drafting a basic skirt. I've already done it for class twice and it is very quick and easy. If I can get it to fit soon, I'm going work on drafting a high-waisted pencil skirt as my first real project! In between my classes, homework, and a possible internship....you know, when I have time...HAHAHA!
To prove that I drew on myself with an emerald green marker:
|I photoshopped out the bust point X's. It looked too pornographic for blog post.|
Just a few more followers until my vintage pattern giveaway! Yesterday we bought 2 huge boxes of older patterns (one box was a dud though) with 60's, 70's, and 80's patterns. I'll pick some of the nice ones from there and from another stash of patterns we bought a while ago.
Maybe it will coincide with my 1st Blogoversary on April 23rd!
