I have been struggling with this sloper idea. As you saw from my previous entry, my first attempt was rather flawed. For my second attempt, I didn't want to have it be horrendous again--I do not have a lot of time to work on this stuff, and when it fails I feel like I have wasted WAY too much time.
Fortunately, the second paper sloper I made is MUCH better. Take a peek below. I put both paper sloper pieces on Gert so you can see the comparison.
|Left is the original, right is the new one. The shoulder line hits the shoulder! |
There is actually a defined bust and waist!
|Left is the new one, right is the original. Look at the difference here!|
|The old bust dart (index finger is where it should be)|
|A curved bust! Huzzah!|
I also took the time to make it out of fabric to see how it would really fit.
|These I did add a seam allowance to sew together|
There are NO seam allowances on these pieces, so I made a point to mark it on the actual pieces so I do not forget.
I am actually behind on blogging. I actually designed a blouse, modified my basic sloper to make it, and then made it! I have pictures and everything. I am hoping to post those this week.
Are you behind on blogging? Or is it only me that feels overwhelmed in spring?
