Drafting a Bodice and Skirt Block
These photos show the skirt I made by drafting the pattern from my own measurements. It fits perfectly and feels so comfortable. You might remember the top I made with the fabric used in this skirt. Hard to believe that this skirt started out with a single straight line on a piece of brown paper!
Here is a close up of the dart. Darts can be positioned where you need them. After sewing up the first muslin, I found that I needed shorter darts in the front (to give room for the abdomen), and longer darts in the back to make the fabric skim my flatter backside. Ah, the aging process--working with it, not against it is best in sewing.
