This week we started pattern cutting in preparation for our shirt project:
- Drafting a classic shirt block and sleeves
- Drafting a range of collars (mandarin and classic shirt) and cuffs
- Adding darts and shaping, pockets and shirt tails
All patterns were taken from Winifred Aldrich’s Metric Pattern Cutting.
Definitely a left brain exercise, which I enjoyed when I treated it like a crossword or logic puzzle.
