Patterns & Muslins

I have now made the patterns for my collection! To do this, I took basic pattern blocks and manipulated them to create flat patterns that will go on to create the garments.

After drafting a first pattern, I would then make a muslin. Muslins are rough copies of the garments that are made to the exact design and proportions, out of fabrics that hold a similar weight to the final product. With muslins made, I could then modify the original pattern, repeating this process until everything is perfect.

I have been making about an outfit a week lately. Each outfit requires two to three muslins, and that alone often needed more supportive muslins to get the final ones. Needless to say, things have been busy.
