You will create a front and back bodice block by draping fabric directly onto the stand. Following the directions below you will mark on the neckline, armholes, seam lines and darts. then transfer the calico ‘pattern’ onto paper.
This pattern new pattern can be trued up to ensure that it all matches and lines up correctly before recutting the whole bodice in calico and making it up again to double check the pattern.
Using this process you will create one simple garment from your capsule collection. You will need to choose an appropriate fabric to create a toile for your simple draped garment.
Once you have created the draped shape you will transfer all construction lines and any technical information including grain lines and notches so you will be able to re-produce the garment in your finished fabric.
You will produce and present a well finished draped garment as part of your 8 garment capsule wardrobe.
You will record and review your work in your Sewing Journal.
