Drape, drape, and away!

Still got one more class left in my draping night class. I am going to be really glad when it is over because I believe I am more of a pattern drafter than a draper. The last two classes have been frustrating while working on the skirt portion. So frustrating that I didn’t take photos of it! I blame the shoddy mannequins we have to use and perhaps the mannequins aren’t suited to the directions given to us by our instructor. I think there was really only one girl in the class who could get it right without too many problems…and she had a different type of mannequin. Whatever. I did my best.

Then we moved onto draping a cowl and that was so much fun! Made me feel a lot better about draping. It was more creative as we only had to follow a few general guidelines to ensure a proper cowl was draped but other than that we had free reign to drape however we wanted. Now for a photobomb! The cowl first and then my finished basic bodice drape.

I did these horizontal pleats instead of darts to use up the excess…I’m very obsessed with these kinds of pleats right now! Can’t wait to do this on a skirt and have them all pressed nice and flat.
