Not too long ago, I remembered a plush toy pattern that I had drafted about eight years ago. I thought it wasn't a bad time to pull it out and update it so I can turn it into a digital pattern for sale on Craftsy.
I finished these all up weeks ago and haven't posted for ages. Oops. Sometimes
The pattern drafting paid off for me big time. I only needed to make a few alterations to get a basic sleeveless t-shirt pattern. I will now use this pattern to make a few t-shirts from the double brushed poly I bought. With a few alterations, I will make a more fancy t-shirt by including some ruching, and will also use it as the basis for the bodice of a few knit dresses.
I turned my woven sloper into a knit sloper and made a few modifications for the first try of my own t-shirt pattern. I would have started working on the top itself, except I had to wash the fabric.
I thought I would share some designs that I hope to use with those fabrics I got recently. I hope to be able to get working on a project soon. I also have a few home decor projects to work on too. Cowhide, suede, and leather lacing are on the supplies list.
Help! I have a few design ideas floating around, and I am trying to decide what I should do.
I made mini mock-ups in doll size to get a better feel for how a design would work.
Okay, so it is Tuesday instead of Monday. My excuses for being late are that I was gone part of the weekend, Sunday I was playing with my new smart phone, and Monday and today I had to complete the project to even have something to post about.
I haven't been completely lazy lately, although I didn't manage to get a post out Monday. I will use the fact that is a national holiday as my excuse.
I have finally gotten around to putting together a bodice moulage and without too much tears and anguish over fitting problems.
I have been working on my personal pattern slopers or pattern blocks starting with the bodice moulage. I want my clothes to fit well and I think the best way to do that is with custom patterns.
