What on earth have I gotten myself into again. Hours of sewing, gluing stras stones, assembling stuff out of cardboard, bending wonderflex (which is something i haven't really done before). That's what lies ahead of me.... And for some reason people do this willingly!? well it's creative and is something some people like to do so yea! :D
I also have a notebook where I write down everything i need, where to get them and how much they're going to cost. And basically when i start doing this it's 100% sure i'll be making it > _ <
Today for the first time i decided to try making patterns. And wtf i succeeded! I don't know if anyone uses this way to make the patterns but it worked for me very well.
I have a sewing mannequin which is nonadjustable but works fine for me since it's exactly the same size as i am. Since the torso of the dress is skintight I came up with an idea to draw the seams on the mannequin with a fabric pencil using the reference pictures I've found
I had to edit the picture so the light is not correct, but at least now you can see what I've drawn :D Since I came up with this during the weekend when no stores are open I had to use baking paper to draw the patterns on. It's see trough so it does the trick. Next up, I placed the baking paper on the pattern i wanted to make and drew the outlines. Then cut the piece and repeated this untill i had all the pieces i needed
And here you can see all of the patterns. It's missing the sleeve and the hems but they're easy to make without them. Next up I'll be making a test dress out of cheap fabric using these to make sure the measurements are right for sure. Even if I've used the mannequin to make these I have a gut feeling something isn't right and if that happens with the proper dress fabric I'll be dreary about it if I need to start unpicking seams > _ <
-CNya till then!
