Dress Pattern Drafting, Take One

I just wanted to post a little visual update to my Kickstarter project that was funded a few months ago. After I got other major commitments out of the way, I was finally able to start working with the pattern drafting software. The software came with a 100+ page manual, which my eyes pretty much gloss over every time I try to look at (sad but true). I guess I can kind of compare it to learning Photoshop or Illustrator. I mean, really, why can’t like 2 buttons suffice? ;-)
Anyway, I sort of fiddled with things enough that I got the basic pattern pieces for two dresses printed out. This by no means is even the tip of the iceburg, but it’s definitely progress. I have a bunch of thrifted sheets and I’m planning to get some fabric cut up and see if they even somewhat resemble a dress when I slap them on my body…fingers crossed.
Thank you again to everyone who supported my endeavor, be it from a donation or hand-holding or re-Tweet or just well wishes. I really appreciate you all so much. :-) Will keep you posted…will be needing some pattern testers soon. ;-)

  1. Good luck with it! I still only use about, err, 1/8 of Photoshop’s capabilities, but I’ve won competitions with my photos, so I guess you don’t need to master it all at once ;o)

  2. I am speechless….See this is why you are so inspiring..you just whipped these out during your loss of sewing mojo???? You are amazing and I soo can’t wait to see this dress slapped onto you.

  3. I admire that you have so many courage for getting know new complicated software! But I’m sure you’ll succeed and I keep my fingers crossed for it!

    PS. I would love to be your pattern tester:)))

  4. Excellent submit. I’d like to understand your time that was invest to create this kind of articles or blog posts. I am hoping their own wholesale Green Coffee Bean Extract quest to build up the actual assignments in the open, determining mastering ambitions & milestones, creating training would have been a accomplishment.
