Pattern Drafting/ Draping
Pictured below on the left is the upper back being draped and on the right shows the completed pattern translated to paper.
The curved hem at the back was challenging to neatly turn in. I applied a hand sewn ease stitch to help press the curve in. This takes a bit longer to complete but it is so helpful!
Here are a few things I learned from creating this design:
- When draping a fitted design for myself on a dress form, decrease the bust in the pattern because my bust measurement is not as large as Miss Alice the dress form.
- Interline or interface the front and back neckline facing to provide more structure. What an amateur move by me! I wanted to maintain a really light and airy feel to this design, but I still needed to maintain shape/structure around the neckline.
