i just got the book “metric pattern cutting for women’s wear” by winifred aldrich. at first sight it looks like it could become my bible (no offence!).
but when i looked at the part where she explains how to make blocks from your individual measurements, i got confused, cos for the waist-to-hip-measurement she just goes back to the standard measurements that are based on the bust measures.
Being taller than average (176cm/5’10) and extremely pear shaped (76cm waist, 108 cm hip), the standard measurements for waist to hip doesnt match at all with my body.
Maybe someone here is more familiar with pattern drafting than me?
I just dont know, if i could just draft the pattern with my measures? or would i have to adjust the pattern in other areas, too?
Please help! ;)
