...and here comes part 2 so we can complete the back xD front will arrive tomorrow, if I can have a normal lunch break and no urgent stuff happens😅
Join C1 and D1 to create the side seam
H-I: perpendicular to C-C1, you can connect the points for easier reference. There is no fixed length for this.
H-L: square down the line from point H of 4,5cm
The armhole curve created by joining points L1-M-C1 can be adjusted after fitting. As a general idea start with a curve that is not too deep as it is more difficult to "fill" after fitting, whereas a narrow curve can be enlarged more easily😃
And here you have your back bodice part! We'll complete the front soon👍 if you feel more comfortable you can totally join the points as you go as shown in the cover photo, if you squint I've traced all the different sections over the finished pattern so you can see the resulting lines under😃
I was taught to always pattern back and front on the same square, and of at first I found it strange, trust me it makes the difference to see the pieces together👍
What do you think of this method? Is it easy to understand? Let me know if I should change something❤

Sometimes it seems like things are just jolly in my world, I expect. But we've had a hard few days - days which make me question myself in the parenting realm. I've lost my marbles more than I care to admit, but I suppose if I never made mistakes with my kids, I wouldn't have room to grow ... and to model to them how to pick myself up after a fall, be gentle to myself, apologize, and reconnect. All important life skills. And so, I'm wearing a little reminder to mother myself - to have the patience for myself that I (usually) have for my kids. Plus, two out of my three kids can read, so the message can't hurt. 😉) Today's mission - Poetry Tea Time with croissants, read-alouds, and early to bed. ✊🏽🖤 Wearing: #arenitepants in a yummy chocolate silk noil - swipe for side pocket view; tee from @thebeeandthefox; #featherweightcardigan, pattern by @knitbot . (Thank you so much for all your knitting tips on my last post, friends! I'm going to try magic loop and small circulars and see which I prefer. 🙏)
Hello everyone! Here is the 1st part of the basic bodice pattern, since there are around 40 passages I'll split the tutorial in 4 parts👍
So, this bodice is the most basic one with no darts and works well especially with stretch materials, in my experience, for all types of bodies😃 I won't be adding ease allowance here but I've added it in the passages where is optional, if you are interested we can talk about it in the future👍
You can find the explanation on the photos for easier reference, below I will list the measurements needed in case of the example ones we're using, and some details, so you can have a practical example of the calculations.
FIRST STEP: prepare a square, you will need approx. half of your bust width and 1/8 of your height, but making it slightly bigger is better, trust me👍 I usually use pattern paper, but you can use any kind of paper you want.
Once you have your square ready we start from the top LEFT side, this will be point A; to save you some cussing later, don't start at the top corner as you will need some additional space in the top right part for the front side (you can see it in the title photo).
A-B: 2,05cm (this will be the depth of the back neckline can be modified to fit better after trial by lowering or lifting B)
A-C: 24,3cm (this will be the armhole depth, the ease allowance here is compulsory. Fit can be adjusted after trial, usually by lowering point C-C1)
A-G: 7,4cm (starting point of the shoulder length)
When facing difficult decimals, go for the closest bigger number (i.e. 7,37 -> 7,4)
How do you find this method? Is it easy to understand? Let me know if I should change something❤ Part 2 is coming in some minutes👍

New book in my sewing library: Building Block Dress by @oli@oliverands. Altough I have a little girl at home and this book is intended for sewing dresses for little girls I actually bought this book more on general patternmaking purposes. I think it's a great resource for learning how to make basic alterations on garments (both for adults and children). It covers a huge amount of versions you can make from a basic pattern and it also includes instructions about sewing: hems, closures, lining etc. I definitely recommend this book for garment sewers out there because it's a great manual to help you out with so many common dressmaking questions. ✂✂ .
Nuevo libro en mi biblioteca de costura: Diseño y Confección de Vestido de Niñas por @oliverands . Aunque yo tengo una niña pequeña en casa y este libro está pensado para coser vestidos para niñas pequeñas la verdad es que lo compré más por el tema de patronaje en general. Creo que es un buen libro para aprender cómo hacer alteraciones en prendas (tanto para adultos como niños). Tiene un montón de versiones que puedes sacar de una base y también te enseñan como confeccionar los detalles: bajos, cierres, forros etc. Desde luego recomiendo el libro porque tiene respuestas a muchísimas preguntas que surgen a la hora de coser un vestido.✂✂
Someone asked me once “where do you find the patience to make sewing patterns?” I have come to appreciate the delicacy and precision pattern cutting encourages you to culture.
The art of creating flat patterns that will be used to cut fabrics which will become three dimensional pieces, has helped me to become more thoughtful as a person. More aware of situations and people around me ✨
The pattern tutorial for a princess seam and side dart on a basic bodice block will be up on the channel this week 🙌
Primer fitting de esta falda. El modelo lo cogi de una reviste y lo adapté. Al hacer el fitting se pueden hacer correcciones que en un princio no se ven, tanto en la tela como en el patrón. En este caso hay un par de cosillas que hay que corregir, como hacer coincidir costuras y darle mas vuelo a los mini volantes de abajo, asi que... manos a la obra!!!! ✂️📍✂️📍✂️📍 #sewing#patronaje#patternmaking#handmade#costummade#fitting#toile#costura
