Oye. Sometimes my timing is really off. I thought I had a fairly clear calendar when I signed up for the Birth of the Bustier class, but life has intervened and I am way behind. Today I finally managed to draft the moulage pattern based on my “bustier model” Jane’s measurements and the Kenneth King”Moulage” DVD. The purpose of this process is to create a “zero ease” fitting garment.
Here are the pattern pieces from the moulage draft above cut apart on the princess line seam:
And here is the muslin, cut with 1 inch seam allowances, marked, and ready for stitching together:
Tomorrow: stitch this baby up and have Jane try it on. Perfect any fitting issues, and establish the bustier design lines on the muslin. Maybe even start the bustier construction!
