Draping an early Venetian Bodice
how to take a commercial pattern and make it into a reasonably period pattern. There are pictures of drafting - or pinching- out the dart of a commercial pattern. The steps are the same as you would do here.
Yay! Final pattern! I've been using a pattern I made using this technique for well over 8 years now. It works beautifully. Over the next week, I'll make a new Italian gown using this new pattern to show the fit and drape - as well as how to use this pattern to make a gown.
