After I made my gaffer tape (duct tape) dressmaker’s form, this was the first pattern I designed using the draping method. It was kind of an arduous process, but the bodice pattern is well-fitted and I can use it as a sloper for future creations. I found attaching the lining to be difficult and am not completely happy with the way that turned out, but I’m pleased with the puffed sleeves and Peter Pan collar.
