Live Class Loni's Night Gown Pattern

Project Description

What was your inspiration? Loni made a more detailed design creating a lovely pattern for a cotton night dress. In adjusting her pattern after draping it on a standard dress form she had to evaluate where she would adjust. She had to increase the bust area and notice how that was done within the gathered section that falls over the bust so it landed in the correct location covering the entire bust area ( a fit issue a lot of people have with the pattern not being long enough and hitting the underbust line). This was a great example of applying the adjusting techniques to a design that has a yoke, and an undarted pattern.

I love to see these types of progrssion photos, I find them so informative and inspiring. I'm at the stage of running through the class quickly to get an overview, then I will follow it more closely. Loni's muslin looks good on her, I'm sure she will have good nights sleep in it. Thank you for showing it.
Joi Mahon answered:
Awesome! I am working on my book and will have various real people as well as various types of garments too.
