I started a little project I call Flekka Challenge: from an idea to a finished garment. I am basically learning how to draft patterns from slopers and I am sharing the process with everybody who cares. The plan is to make about 3 new patterns a month. I start from a photo or a sketch and a sloper. I finish with a piece of clothing. But, it will not be about sewing, it will be about drafting patterns.
This is the first pattern and the first finished garment. For the detailed instructions see Week 1:: Tank top – simple A-line: finished.
If you have any questions, please ask away!
Make something special and practical for your friends and family this holiday season!
