(Imogen explains it in her blog post here)
In my Style Guide from Imogen, she applied these concepts to my specific case, lol, and it is a case.
This morning, while Howie did his crossword puzzle, I played with pencil and paper to see just where I stand with Leonardo.
I like the way Imogen explained it to me.
I think I get it now. My longest quandrant is the one where I used a green marker. In my sewing I will make sure I place necklines where I have indicated, as these produce better proportion.
And look at the difference between the ideal on the left (I drew her a little too skinny- just ignore that- I wasn't sure Id have enough room on the page so she turned into a Ralph Lauren photoshop disaster, oops)
I can see that my proportions below my bustline are not all that weird, but above the bustline, I am just way off the charts. No wonder nothing ever fit me - in RTW or when sewing a pattern straight out of the envelope.
Sooo... still pondering .... this seems like a breakthrough concept for me.
What do you think ?
(and not what do you think about me :0 ...)
Do you want a closer relationship with Leonardo?
I can post more how I figured out these heights on myself.
