I have decided to challenge myself and work my way through Cal Patch's Design it Yourself Clothes (DIYC).
The book is set up as a bit of a workbook. Taking personal measurements and drafting patterns based on those measurements, starting with easier garments working to more difficult ones. My hope is to combine what I have been learning in my slopers class with the draftings in this book to create some custom-fit pieces in my wardrobe.
I plan to chronicle my journey here on the blog. For anyone who may not know, I've been sewing regularly for about six years and would classify myself as an advanced-intermediate sewer. I also plan to document not only the pattern drafting, but also the garment construction note along the way.
Coming up first, the basic A-line skirt.
