Draping on a Dress Form



As a Designer who is still learning and trying new things, it can be very frustrating at times when you try to drape fabric on a form and just go for it.  I think that you kind of do what works for you once you find yourself as a designer.  I personally like to use chalk for my neckline and arm holes and side seams, and I hand sew any pleats in place and don't bother marking them at all before sewing.  Then I like to true my lines and go from there.  Sometimes I have no clue what I am doing, which is always challenging.  Like right now I have no idea what I want to do with the back of this top right now.

I am obsessed with this fabric though.  Isn't it gorgeous?!  It's a jersey knit and light weight and see-through, so I had to make it a top.  I am going to work all night on it now that I have lots of free time.

Have a good Monday!
