Last week I used Kira to test-drive the instructions for drafting and fitting a six-gore skirt. This week I refined the lesson after watching Kira. I think the instructions are now very clear and easy to follow. Unfortunately, I don’t have pictures and pictures are very important. I won’t post the drafting lesson this week as planned.
However, while refining the lesson I realized that there are other important concepts I must give to you in order for you to move forward, such as taking body measurements and understanding grainlines. Therefore, I have created two tutorials to cover those topics. You won’t need all the measurements on the Body Measurement form for drafting the skirt, but you will need these measurements in the future, so take them now.
