Drafting basic briefs…

IMG_8529.JPG

As I mentioned earlier I drafted a brief pattern and made a bunch of underwear for me using fabrics with different amount of stretch to see how the fit changes. Without going into details right now, let me tell you that you really need to know how your fabric stretches before you cut. I will give you more details later. I really like how these fit, so today I worked on drafting other sizes… Exciting!

hi

Just in to say a quick Hi! and show you what I have been working on. Does anyone remember my pattern drafting attempt from a few years ago? I have been revisiting it and drafting some bras. This is a muslin for my first attempt at a basic block for a soft bra. I also made a pattern for briefs – I made myself some underwear that fits so well and are so comfortable. Details in another post…

Pieve skirt

I finished Challenge 13 at flekka-challenge: knee high, slightly flared skirt with no darts in the front. I drafted from a basic straight skirt pattern. You can read all about it here.

Editt top and Marina top finished

Sometimes I forget to tell you here when I finish my project over at flekka-challenge. Since the last one, I made two: Editt top and Marina top. Go on over to flekka challenge for more pictures and step-by-step instructions.
