Making the collection, from sketch to the finished garment.


Now that I have the basic ideas all sketched and done, its time to figure out how to do it.

First thing is the pattern drafting.

Adding the pleat in the front for the sailor look and for the buttons.

The pattern for the jacket. Starting with a shawl collar jacket and adjusting to add the sailor collar.

Cutting the muslin to see if it works.

It doesn't work the first time, so making adjustments on the muslin and then fixing the patterns.
