Okay...I know I should have done this digitally...but I just switched over from windows xp to ubuntu linux.
I'm stickin' it to da man. :p anyway, I haven't properly calibrated my drawing tablet so...yeah, you guys get index cards.
This is really more of a measuring/drafting guide than anything, so I didn't include much assembly help...I guess I'll take pics when I do my next one...or something.
anyway, excuse my bad handwriting and scribbles. Here goes...
get yourself a tape measure, ruler, and a calculator...yes...math.
Oh, and big paper is good as well. I used a huge drawing pad this time, but I've also been known to use doctor exam table paper cover thingies. My mom used to have a home practice, so we still have some rolls. ^_____^ it has giraffes and elephants on it. waaaaai!!!
Measure yourself in the following places. PLEASE add some ease and seam allowance. You can do this either after you measure and before dividing or on paper afterwards.
for the front, you can either cut it large or use a different piece of fabric for the button thing (placket?...)
make sure the skirt matches up with the bottom of the shirt. It can be a little big, since pleats add interest...yeah...interest... :p if you DO have pleats, do them in the front, this way you can dart the back after you do some fitting.
okay, this isn't nearly as complicated as my scribbling indicates...I just couldn't decide whether to say to cut the sleeve as 2 on a fold, or 2 flat. That's what I get for using pen. Do whichever you like, I s'pose. >_____<;;;;
I just put that there because I had an extra side of an index card...^______^;;;;
so ya...my first tutorial attempt...ho yes...Next time, though, I'll definitely have the new driver for my tablet. T__T;;
