Welcome to a new pattern making class. In today’s class, we are going to continue practising the corrective darts.
Before watching this class I recommend that you watch the class on how to make corrective darts if you haven’t already since I am going to assume that you already know how to do them.
To practice the corrective darts we are going to make a top with a deep “v” neckline but to make it more interesting, instead of making it straight, which would be the classic way, we will make it more curved.
In today’s class, you will learn more contour points that you can find on the back.
We will also practice how to make facings on the transformed body and then you will trace them.
As you will see in the class, I cut the patterns directly to go faster but remember that it is better to trace them and save the master pattern in case you have to make any modifications.
In today’s class, we are also going to make a princess seam to make sure that the volume of the darts is balanced.
I will give you the measurements I am working with but feel free to change them to your liking. You can move the opening as you like.
As always, if you have any questions about this class you can send me an email through your user account, in the support section.
Submit your exercises
The best way to learn pattern making is by practising, so for today’s class, I’m going to ask you to make the patterns we’ve made today.
Remember that you can do the exercises at full size or at half scale.
Try to send me clear photos, where the patterns can be seen correctly and do not forget to put all the annotations.
