Trace the pattern of the sleeve, widen the pattern from the center, and cut the mockup:
Remove the bodice sketch from the dress form, true-up the pieces, add seam allowance, and cut the paper patterns.
Day 4: I messed up a bunch of stuff and had to do it over, so more pics on day 5 (it’s called Learning)
Make adjustments to the paper pattern by attaching pieces. Even out the darts, cut the fabric, sew the pieces together. First mock up is done.
Day 6: Moving on to the designer’s next piece, building the dress underneath first:
Rough draft complete.
Day 7: Draft a pattern for a cutout sleeve. The shape of this sleeve is a challenge and required several different drafts.
Day 8: Sleeve complete, mockup 2 complete, actor’s first fitting today:
Trued-up pattern pieces for the wraparound dress:
Day 10: second mockup complete. Nice, smooth darts and better fit.
Day 11: Drape the final piece:
Day 12: preparing muslin to flatline fashion fabric
