Hi sew lover!
Welcome to our very first free tutorial of the year. I’m so excited that I can barely breathe. Lolx.
Today, I’m going to be taking you step by step into how to draft out a pattern for this outfit.
I will be using the quarter-scale pattern-drafting technique, or roughly put in another term, the doll method; which means I will be slashing real life values by 4 in order to fit the pattern into my paper. However, in this case I used 6.
See other inspiration below:
For those that are not familiar with the term “Pattern”, well a pattern is a template from which styles and designs can be made or modified into other designs. It’s an elaborate subject and a unique way to develop and expand your fashion designing and cutting skills. Through pattern-drafting, you can even learn how to cut clothes freehand. You can even start your own fashion line by simply learning how to draft patterns.
Also, it helps to save fabrics from wastage as well as any correction or adjustment that needs to be made on a style before it is cut out on fabric. As a Beginner, you can learn all about it in TheQEffectz Beginner class. Simply click here to check out the course and get trained immediately.
As for today’s tutorial, here are couple of things you need to know about our style in question before we begin.
- It consist of a twisted bodice in front
- It is asymmetrical
- It has ruffles
- It has pleats at the front skirt
If you look closely, you’ll see it is quite different from the other inspirations. Thus, please do note that this tutorial is not for beginners. If however, you wish to experiment, by all means, experiment away and feel free to leave any questions you may have on the comment box below.
