The Construction of Pericles – beginning to end

Day 1:

We’re going to build this dress based on the designer’s sketch
After getting the actors’ measurements, pad the dress form to fit their exact size and shape.


Then drape the pattern using muslin.


Day 2:

Drape the back

Trace the pattern of the sleeve, widen the pattern from the center, and cut the mockup:


Finished sleeve mockup


Remove the bodice sketch from the dress form, true-up the pieces, add seam allowance, and cut the paper patterns.

Day 4: I fucked up a bunch of stuff and had to do it over, so more pics on day 5 (it’s called Learning).
