In my last post (what was that? A few hours ago?) I mentioned that some of the measurements for my Fancy Pants were too snug for me as they were taken last year. So I decided it was high time to re-draw my bodice sloper based on a more up-to-date “me”. Instead of going with my sewing school’s regular method of sloper drafting, I attempted to use the drafting method of the Bunka Fashion College. This is a Japanese sewing school and they have an English translation of their entire series of pattern drafting books. Yay! But first, the measurements:
After completing a relatively complex (at my beginner skill level) lace dress project for a friend of mine, I decided that I wanted some to do some easy and quick “me” sewing. Sewing for me, by me, as a break from the world.
I settled on a pair of comfortable pants for lounging around the house, which in my case, means napping and generally being lazy after a crazy day at work. I did not even bother with drawing my own pants pattern, instead I picked one out from a Japanese pattern book.
