We are onto part 4 of the t-shirt pattern drafting series. So far we have gathered our supplies, taken our measurements and performed some of the necessary calculations we will need to draft the pattern. Now we will be using our calculated measures to draft the bodice of our t-shirt.
The calculations worksheet has a diagram of the pieces we are going to be drafting. All you have to do it use your calculated measures to create a to-scale version of the pattern pieces. To watch me walk you through the process, check out my video below.
Just a note about the video, the first line I draw IS perpendicular to the edge of my page, but it doesn’t look like it because of the perspective from the camera angle.
How did you find the drafting process? Was it easier than you expected? Do you have any questions? I’d love to see your bodice patterns! To share your questions or comments, comment below. If you have pictures you’d like to share, join our Facebook group, email me or use our Instagram hashtag #appletreedraftatee.
Once you’ve finished your bodice, your ready to move on to drafting the sleeve.
