I can't believe the skirts you ladies have created! They fit like a glove on both of you! Kudos on a job well done! We are almost finished the skirts section and I think next week we will be ready to start the bodice front :)
Homework is to teach the other the method you drafted in class, draft a circle skirt, semi-circle skirt and circle Volant. Trace the pattern pieces on both skirts drafted in class complete with reference points and personal adjustments as discussed in class.
Next session we will be doing the other volants to finish the skirts section, we will be going over how to take measurements and record them to get ready for the bodice. We will start on the basic block for the front bodice.
Yes ladies you will be entering the most fascinating phase of pattern drafting! The bodice is the very foundation of all garments besides pants. All patterns start with the basic block, the shaping is added later.
I think you are going to be just as pleased with the tops like you are with the skirts.
Have a great weekend!
