Swing Dress: Update #2
It's time for the latest Swing Dress news.
My Sense and Sensibility Swing Dress Pattern was an "e-pattern", which, for those of you who don't know, means that it was less expensive than a regular paper pattern bought in a store or through the mail. It also means that I had to put it together after printing it off of my computer. This isn't as daunting of a task as it might seem. Basically, just print off a test page first to make sure the size is printing at 100%. Then, print off every thing else, match up all of the pieces, like a puzzle, and tape them together.
The next step was to cut out the pattern at the largest size, so that I had all of the other sizes available should I ever need them. I could have also left the pieces all together on the large sheet of paper, which I sometimes do, and then proceed with the third step, which was to trace and cut out MY size onto Swedish Tracing paper. Either way, I now have my size available to use, and the other sizes are still undamaged.
Finally, I placed the tracing paper pattern I had just cut out in my size onto some cheap, white muslin, and copied and cut out the muslin pattern pieces.
I now have my muslin, mock-up ready to go. I will sew it all together next and fit it to myself. Not exactly exciting stuff...but at least I'm keeping up with the Sew-Along.
