Great job ladies on the mock ups! Janet's skirt fit like a glove on the first try! Miriam needs a couple of adjustments,nothing earth shattering but it will make the difference between a good fit and a great fit!
Your Homework is to create a mock up of the box pleat skirt taking into account personal adjustments;
Miriam you are to make the adjustment as we discussed on Skype to your pattern, lower the centre front and then re-draw the waistline as we discussed. Continue with the mock up of the box pleat pattern....
Janet if you have a piece or twine or yarn tie one piece around your waist and one piece around the widest part of your hips, standing in front of a mirror sideways making sure the lines are parallel to the floor measure down the side from the waist to the hips and use that measurement instead of the requisite 17 to draw in the hipline. I’m almost certain it will be a little longer, if that is the case use the French curve to draw in the curved line. Try it and see what happens with the next mock up.
These two adjustments will make the difference between a good fit and a great fit! See you in a couple of weeks....
