so, i have these magazines from japan that come with sewing patterns (you can see one here if you're curious: http://www.otaku.co.uk/cgi-bin/itemview.asp?itemid=66889e
). my problem is that not all of the pieces for all of the outfits n stuff are on the pattern sheet, some drafting is required. the pictures are really good so knowing japanese isnt my problem.
but anyway, my question is, should i go out and buy a set of french or ship curves or something or is free-handing the curves safe? right now its just me, a ruler, and a giant roll of tracing paper. also, if i do decide to buy some curves, do i need a whole set or just one thats a particular size? these things really baffle me lol
thanks for any help
