I just wanted to show all the projects I made using the same pattern. On my blog I show all the steps required to change that basic pattern to get these designs. Some of the things I wrote about: reshaping neck and arm openings, adjusting wide/deep neck openings, bust dart rotation, and how to draft french sleeves and flounces.
The basic pattern is free and available in sizes 36 – 42. All you have to do is follow a few simple steps. Actually, you can probably use the tricks I show on my blog and create something entirely new.
More here. There you can find the pattern and all the instructions.
