I want to try and make a top kind of like this:
from sorbetto base.
I’m trying to play around with pattern drafting, so while I know there are a few patterns out there similar, I want to try it for myself.
My question is, do I just slash and spread? and if so is there a way to slash that doesn’t involve the pleat-slash going all the way to the bottom of the shirt? Volumous tops don’t suit me, but I do love the pleated necks that are everywhere!
I’m going to attempt it with some cheapo fabric this weekend, but I’d rather start from an educated base!
Any good hints or resources?
