sewing help is at hand!
I have been busy studying and trying to teach myself basic patten drafting from this excellent and much raved about book, called "Metric Pattern cutting for childrens wear and baby wear" by Winifred Aldrich.
I will admit, i need silence, a calculator and a brain that works (all of which are in short supply here) and i repeat each sentence i have read atleast 3 times before i make a mark on my paper... it is a slow process!
Even slower when there is something fundamentally wrong with what i am doing! I cannot figure out for the life of me what i am doing wrong!
I keep producing these wide, broadbacked patterns for little children! something is very wrong here...
i have however come across this really interesting and helpful forum called (surprisingly) The Sewing Forum , and i am hoping for someone to help me out with my litle issue....!!!
If you have any useful info on this topic, i would be so happy to hear what you have to say!!
