In this first post I'd like to cover taking the body measurements you'll need to select the right size block or pattern. In most cases your measurements are not going to ever exactly match all size charts. Size charts are designed for mass production and as such represent the median of the population only.
The #PatternPuzzle sample this week is The Wrap Drape Dress from 2014. You can pop back to the original post for a refresh of all the pattern making instructions. I've used my Knit Block to make this elegant stretch pattern.
This is where it all started: The Dolman Coat. Inspired by a Yamamoto garment: the pattern making instructions were developed for a loose fit kimono block. For this sample I have used a polar fleece and for winter that makes it seriously snuggles. ;)
