This is half of a skirt. Half of a skirt that is likely to never be a completed skirt since this is the test of my pattern draft. However, as a friend suggested, I could always turn this into an apron.
Pattern drafting has been fairly good to me so far. This bottom panel of the skirt though needs more than one rendition before I will be happy.
The photo above is of the bottom piece. The line running semi horizontally through the piece at the bottom is the real bottom of the piece. I had added some paper at the bottom to help work out some of the unevenness of the hem. As you can see though the top of the piece is longer than the bottom. Because the top is longer, it causes some funny puffing near the seam line to the piece above. I am going to have to alter the piece so the top and bottom are closer to the same length.
I have begun working on the new draft for the bottom piece, but I still have more work to do before I get to try it, which due to current circumstances will likely be a few weeks,
I am looking forward to Monday's post. Can't wait to share it with you!
