Taking some time to practice

I’ve been pretty busy with patternmaking and tailoring classes the last couple years. Between classes and a demanding job, it’s been hard to really practice what I’ve been learning. I’m excited to take some time to do just that. Below is the first article of clothing I’ve ever drafted for myself. I realize it looks like a simple pencil skirt, and well, it is. But, it took me a lot of drafts to get the fit right. It was tedious but partly my own fault because my math was off in in my initial draft. The best part about drafting this skirt is that I finally have a sloper skirt. So, all the vintage patterns I have where the bust fits but the bottom is too small, I can easily swap out the bottom half for my sloper skirt. Woot!
