WooHOO! I did it! As many of you know, I watch Cal Patch's Master Pattern Drafting Work Along on Creativebug.com earlier this year. The pattern I drafted for my tunic/dress muslin was a bit too snug. I still haven't around to making the adjustments on that pattern.
But earlier this month, I decided to make one of the A-line skirts in Cal Patch's tutorial. This was so much fun! I made a muslin, decided on some adjustments to make it look better on me and made the skirt shown above!
I used freezer paper for the large piece of the pattern. It's great just to be able to roll off a long piece of paper for each piece of the pattern. For the pockets pieces I used tracing paper. To add the flair to the A-line skirt pattern, the basic skirt pattern is into sections and spread apart. I was nearing the end of my roll of freezer paper. As I cut each segment of the skirt pattern, it curled! It reminded me of the wigs the girls wear for Irish Step dancing! Fortunately, a little tape tamed the curls long enough to draw my final pattern pieces!
