Here’s the second draft of my slashed sleeve top. I improved on one feature: the cuffs; but I worsened two! The sleeve head now hasn’t enough fullness and the bodice is too long.
I like to think that learning to draft is like learning to drive. The mistakes and the failures make you better and more knowledgeable than someone who struck lucky the first time around. I hope to find that thought a comfort when I begin draft three. 🙄
Now for the admin. I’ll be celebrating my blog’s second birthday by smartening up this site. The idea is that by making sew2pro more marketable, it’ll hopefully be a little less overlooked. It won’t be an overnight change because I’m a Luddite who constantly alienates her IT staff by being destructive and unintuitive with the ways of … (*spits on floor*) technology!
So, while I knuckle down, will you please let me know by comment or email if:
– you want your blog included in my list of links on bottom right
– you recommend any sewing or drafting blogs or how-to websites for me to add to my reading list. My blogroll is currently in the doldrums and a couple of favourites haven’t been updated in months. Ideally I need tutorials with good visuals, or book reviews (like Pella‘s series on pattern drafting books), or guides on turning clothes-making into a profession.
