I've been trying to figure out how to copy View C of New Look 6000 for Winnie's Polka Dot FrockFrest, but didn't feel too confident about my progress so far.
Imagine my surprise when I saw the evening's program at pattern drafting class!
This skirt is half of my dress right there! My teacher Nick was more than happy to fill me in on how to proceed with the other half and I now think I have it down now. I've been enjoying my pattern drafting class SO. MUCH. by the way -- I have to do a separate post about it.
Now, the only issue standing between me and New Look 6000 is my darn bodice bloc. I desperately need to fix. Although it's totally functional at the moment, the position of the bust point and bust darts are not accurate, which is weird since it fits like a glove, but which totally won't fly with dart manipulation.
Speaking of positive sewing coincidences: Last year, in Granada, I kept thinking "I need to buy a screwdriver to fix my sewing machine. I need to buy a screwdriver. I need to buy a screwdriver." And the next thing I know, I wake up one morning and there is a bright-red screwdriver that seems to have fallen from the sky to land on my third-floor terrace. I was able to fix my sewing machine and two days later I had a brand new Minoru jacket, which I love to this day. How crazy is that?
Sometimes, the universe conspires to help us sew! And I'm sew grateful when that happens!
