11  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: How would I go about making this mini dress? on: March 30, 2006 03:57:26 AM
Start with a maygar/kimono sleeve pattern, if you don't have any patterns use an oversized t-shirt. Borrow one from your dad, lay it flat so you can trace it on to paper. To get the fullness under the sleeve lower the underarm, draw a smooth curve starting from the hem of the shirt all the way to the sleeve hem. Then to get more fullness draw a straight line from the neck along the shoulder and extend this until you get the sleeve length you want, guess what that's a maygar block. Now you can add in all the design features like the gather in the shoulder/sleeve whatever your sleeve length from shoulder edge probably double this length. The same goes for the body part measure how long you want the dress and double. There should only be side seams with the folded edge being the shoulders, you should have a full front pattern and when you cut the fabric then mark on the body how low you want the neck. To get the bottom section of the dress just fit it too your body. Good luck I hope I was able to help I would like to know if it works out. I tried to keep it simple I didn't know how experienced you are as a sewer. If you need more details let me know.
