After reading the initial first chapters and looking over measurements, I've drafted my front bodice. I'm using the Helen Joseph Armstrong's Patternmaking for Fashion Design 5th edition. It's an amazing book! Tomorrow I'm making the back, skirt, and sleeve drafts. Then I'll see about adjustments and trying them on some test fabric. It's all pretty exciting. After the basic pattern sets are drafted, I'm going to start draping as well. I hope to post more often on my blog. I think it could be fun to see my progress at patternmaking.
