As per my previous posts I now have the tools for the 1876 drafting system.
The science and geometry of dress
by Jackson, Louisa L., Mrs. [from old catalog]
I printed and used contact spray to lay them on the inside of a cardboard box my new mirror came in. So nice to have an honest mirror that I can also move for best light/view 🙂
So I think I got the bodice close, in comparison to the size of the dart anyway. If I have any concerns I know I can redo them using the miniature dart form.
Last night I also padded and resized a dress form to be the ideal shape. Which means today actually draping and drafting 🙂
