=> I'll leave the post up "as is" for now. Scroll down to see where it all went wrong.
Finally I was able to start drafting my pattern, now all rulers have arrived. I am not completely done yet (obviously) - but this is up to the positioning of the pockets.
Today is was able to complete the drawing.
So, two things that bother me a bit:
1) Compared to what the video shows, my armhole seems to be completely "off". => YES - It is! 2) Point 13A is way further up the back sleeve seam.
One of the major things that might be responsible for these "misfits" might be my smaller head unit, I guess.
Questions: 1) The breast dart (?!) - under the lapel: What goal does it have? Is it for people with a more prominent breast?
2) Rory drew in the pocket flap for demo purposes - but I didn't see any measurements for it in the notes. Will these be mentioned later on? (I guessed at 2")
Oh well... @Rory Duffy - Master Tailor, and everybody else here, of course: Would love to read your thoughts so far! => Don't bother yet... I'll give yous a yell if my second attempt is up.
Notes to self (and possibly others too):
1) This paper is sh**e. Markers will smudge, pencil is better, but leaves smudges too - Get better paper next time!
2) Decent handwriting would be handy too - so you can decipher your own numbers. 3) Get yourself a plastic grader / ruler (Imperial system) - it'll save you a lot of time.
And last but not least: 4) STAY FOCUSED AND CHECK WHAT YOU ARE DOING! (It'll save you from drawing the pattern again!)
