DJ1-This is the finished version of the fitted draped bodice. Altering dart, snipping and trimming helped to reduce the drag lines. One thing that I found interesting was the difference between flat pattern and actually working on a dress form. The darts and lines all turned out curvy in order for the bodice to fit like a glove. Also, noticing the original bust line curves up when it's on body, shows how curvy the body is compare to flat paper patterns.
DJ1 Basic Bodice & Skirt: In class, we draped a basic bodice on the dressform. A note taken was to mark dotted lines onto the seams (such as at the shoulder, side, waistline, and armhole). These act as guidelines for us to manage our draping. I found these guidelines to be quite essential to finishing in draping. Even if the fabric molds to the dress form, the guidelines may help to decide how the garment should sit.
