Here is my current (second take) moulage:
|The sleeve and necklines are stay-stitched, but after taking it off & on several times, |
the armholes and neckline stretched out a bit.
The sloper is created from the moulage by adding bit of ease. I also rotated the darts out to princess seams for my sloper:
|I wanted to get through sloper so I could commence work on the sleeve. |
I just wasn't happy with the sleeves from my recent muslins.
For this sleeve, I cut it off just above the elbow to save on fabric during testing.
|This is my second sleeve. I learned so much drafting the first one.|
Concepts clicked and the second one is pretty much
the best sleeve I've ever had.
|And yes, I'll get around to addressing this fullness above my waist.|
I can upload these photos to the craftsy platform to see what Suzy says.
Anyhoooooo, I have moved on since taking these photos and drafted my own version of Marfy 3408. I'll sew it up soon.
In addition, I am enjoying reading Make Your Own Dress patterns by Adele Margolis. Now that I have a sleeve sloper, I can make some creative sleeves.
Good times, people, good times!
Shall we daydream a bit?
Gotta get out of the sewing room - we're headed down to Rockville for some sentimental enjoyment of the old neighborhood today. Hope your sewing is making you happy today!
