It's so exciting seeing the first images of the patterns posted on the flickr group page! Tomorrow we'll put notches in our patterns and, for those working with the Corsets and Crinolines pattern, add length. We won't be adding any seam allowance to the patterns yet, we'll wait until we've done the fittings and drafted alterations before we do that. We'll add a hearty 1 inch to the fabric when we trace onto muslin for the mock-up so we'll have plenty of room to make adjustments when fitting.
How is the patterning coming along? So far so good? I'll leave you today with a pretty silhouette courtesy of the McCord Museum.
