I took a draping class last weekend that I absolutely LOVED! It’s so interesting to learn a new method! Now I need a dress form… Anyway, we learned how to make a sloper by draping, then we got to play around for about 45 minutes. Here is what I came up with 🙂 I’m hoping to some day sew this up in a good fabric.
I also finished a shirt a couple weeks ago. It gave me some trouble. After I pressed the pleats at the top, they got all stretched out, and I had to cut off about an inch of the neckline because of it. Oh well, it’s not perfect, but it is wearable 🙂 It’s also a bit short, which I wasn’t expecting. It’s something I always need to check for because of my long waist, and I just didn’t do it this time. (sorry for the pictures… the dressform bust is quite a bit larger than mine)
We’re going to Nashville for the weekend and I’m very excited, even though it’s supposed to rain the whole time (and it’s supposed to be gorgeous here…). It will be good to get away!
As a side note, I can’t wait for Bones to start back up this week! I think it’s one of my new favorite shows 🙂 Is anyone else excited? Ha! Oh yeah, and The Office, which I have loved since the beginning!
