It’s been a while since I posted an update for Project Patternmaking and my goals have changed since I first started it. Since I’ve started I’ve learnt a more industry based method of pattern making that isn’t covered in one of the books I was reviewing and have started to develop my own style. At this point since my focus is to develop and release patterns in 2017 of my own I don’t want to be distracted by covering different methods nor do I want to unfairly criticize another method because it’s not the same as my own. I also most importantly of all want to feel that my work is MY work and that is not a hodge-podge of other people’s patterns and instructions. I don’t want anyone discounting my knowledge because it seems derivative or plagiarized. Though in reality, most bra making methods are similar because there is little variation in bras themselves.
So what I will focus on is making more tutorials on how you can make your own pattern adjustments and how to emulate the RTW bras that you love. Copying a bra from measurements not by pin copying or taking the bra completely apart has been a revelation for me. I hope in the future I can explain it well enough to share with you. But all in due time.
