Creating the Bodice Pattern
This was my first experience creating a front and back bodice pattern piece. I’m really enjoying it because it reminds me of a puzzle. The problem that I came across was when I was off on my measurements which caused me to have to go back several steps in order to fix the pattern. Since this was a simple pattern it wasn’t to bad when it came to fixing it but it is something that I need to definitely be aware of for a more difficult pattern because I can see the nightmare it could create! The second problem is that my adorable furry babies fought for my attention while completing this project.
For this project I also needed to create a flat sketch. Because my drawing skills are mediocre I used my nifty. tools to get better accuracy.
