After so many pattern alterations to the first sample pattern, I'm excited to show you how the second sample turned out. Below you can see the pattern alterations (brown paper) I made to the first sample pattern. And I've selected a cotton/linen blend for the second sample. You will find all the first sample and pattern alteration detail in this post: Sampling the Flare and Gather Dress and Pattern Alterations - Flare and Gather Dress Pattern.
In this post I hope to link up some of the illustration and patternmaking resources I have on the website so you can plan your pattern making creativity over the summer break. These suggestions are a combination of free access blog posts, digital product you can buy and download and members blog posts with extra pattern making information.
So often I'm asked how I make my fitting toile's for Trouser Blocks, so I'd thought I'd put together a short post with some detail. Many of the points are small but essential for a good #FirstFitting. You can access a download of my Trouser Block here. I've also uploaded a worksheet that covers the detail for the first stage of fitting the trouser block. The PDF worksheet includes detail instructions and technical diagrams to take you through every step of the process.
