Tools Of The Trade

I have set myself to learn a new hobby, a useful one. Pattern drafting! Yes, you’ve read right, I’m going to learn to draft my own patterns, perfectly fitted to my body (ok, and maybe someone’s else).

I got all my tools: pencils, measuring tape, big sheets op paper (or actually, a roll of white paper), a French curve, and book teaching me how to draft.

Now, to start with the A-line skirt and move on to more difficult patterns. Because I have a dress idea perfect for autumn/winter.

    I applaud your industry. But you did not say why you want to re-invent the wheel. In the time you will spend learning how to draft patterns, you could have sewn an entire wardrobe. I sorta understand. My over 50 sister in law is learning how to play violin.

    It’s not reinventing the wheel. Is creating personal patterns that fit me perfectly, and then being able to sew my own ideas without needing to buy a pattern and then modify it to fit me and to adapt to the design I want.
