I’ve successfully created my paper pattern for my top. I used a basic bodice block which I then altered to fit my design. Once I had done this, I created my toile from Calico; I only made half a toile as the pattern is identical for both left & right sides of the body and would have been unproductive to make a whole toile. I am happy with the result of my pattern so far. The design works and fits on the stand well. I’ve also completed my pattern and toile for my dress. This was more challenging as my pattern was in more sections due to the nature of my design. I had concerns that the top half of the dress would slide off the shoulders but to my relief, it held in place. Now that my patterns are prepared, I will start producing my final garments. I need to purchase the fabrics that I want to use; for the top I have chosen to use white lace & cotton. For my dress, I will be using black georgette & cotton.
