Pattern Drafting Series
This is just an introduction post to let you all know that I'll be starting a Pattern Drafting 101 series.
I hope to give you the knowledge to create some of your own patterns.
I'll begin with some explanation posts, proceed to some simple apron patterns, and build up to drafting your own skirt, pant and shirt patterns. I also hope to show you how to alter existing patterns to fit your body type.
I don't have a set time-line for these posts as they'll be a work in progress.
I am completely self taught with the help of books and the internet. It is a dream of mine to one day take the dressmakers courses offered at my local community college. In all honesty, I don't have the time or finances for that right now so instead of wishing I have started on this path to teach myself. I hope to share with you what I learn along the way.
I encourage you to work and learn along with me!
