Hey all! I've been pushing through a lot of the pattern work today and I have finally moved on to fabric pattern drafting. For those who don't do sewing, or are just beginning, it is always good to do a fabric mock up of designs with cheaper fabric to ensure the outfit transfers from 2D to 3D without any issues. And I am glad I did:
The right side (our right, not the dress form) was cut from my pattern, the left is my revised version with pins. It definitely isn't an issue if the patterns are too big, that is an easy fix. It only becomes scary when you cut your super expensive fabric and realize it is WAY too small. So, I will have a bit of trimming to do before I start cutting the jacket fabric. I plan to have Rana try on the test pieces before I do final cuts, in case my little dress form lies to me.
