I’m finally getting my house in order, and this weekend was able to squeeze in some drafting for the Top Draftalong. I started by making a list of the adjustments I needed to make to the basic block, took a deep breath, and dived in…
The drafting I’ve done so far is for this style, without the button back at this stage as I wanted to test my drafting with a (hopefully) wearable toile, before diving into drafting button plackets and facings….
I was weirdly nervous when I cut into my fabric. You kind of assume a commercial pattern is gonna work out because “they” know what they’re doing. But this is the first test of my drafting from a block so I had a familiar twinge of self doubt (despite the simple design and the fact that everything looks perfectly alright!). But, feel the fear and do it anyway, right?! Hopefully should have my toile all finished up before the weekend 🙂
Oh and while I remember, don’t forget, you have until Friday (Midnight GMT) to enter the giveaway 🙂
