Hey y’all! Did you enjoy the weather? It was difficult going to work last week; the rain was not on my side this time.
Today is all about illustration tutorial, I know this design is common, but it’s different in a way, because I used floral print chiffon.
Grab your pattern paper, scissors, ruler, triangular ruler, pencil or pen, and measuring tape
You have to start with a basic block dress pattern. I have a tutorial on that and a free downloadable pattern too.
Created a basic dress block pattern with a waist dart
Cut out the skirt part, we only need to tweak the bodice part. Make sure you add joining allowance on your fabric or pattern before you cut.
Find the center point of the armhole, find the center point of the bust too and mark.
Connect the points with a French curve or harness your drawing skills.
Create a V-CURVE depending on how low or how revealing you want your chest. Mine was a bit low. Connect the V-Curve to the armhole line.
Cut it out.
Nothing special about the back, it’s just a basic dress pattern with zipper.
Just draft a back dress pattern and add 1 inch zip allowance to it. Do the same curve at the back without a dart allowance.
Draft your basic sleeve pattern and cut off the top part. I advise you first sew before you cut out the remaining one.
