A morning's work drafting
I get so much done when I am alone in the room.
I started the trouser pattern late yesterday afternoon, and finished it up before I started in on the waistcoat and jacket pattern.
I started with my basic grid set up, and draft to the measurements I have- then I modify where I think it is needed. In this case I am dealing with an eight inch chest to waist drop and a drop of five inches waist to hip. So a bigger broader chest and slim hip size. I made a little modification in the back length as well splitting the back and opening it up for a bit of a forward head/neck.
I was drafting in pen to try to make it visible in photos, so you get to see the mess I made!
I had to leave at noon, so I left it to percolate around in my head for the rest of the week end. The fabric should arrive Tuesday morning and I need to put the scissors to it right away.
Sorry about the photo quality, had to be quick about it all and of course the camera battery chose today to run low!
