Hi there – long time reader, first time poster.
I work in a university theatre department, and I’ll be putting together a number of 1930’s patterns for a play this summer. I usually draft my own patterns – but time is of the essence, and all my student labor has gone home for the summer!
First up is a 1930’s McCall’s pattern:
Super cute, eh? The challenge on this one was that my actress has a bust that’s about 8″ larger than the pattern bust – so it had to be severely graded up. The toile looks very promising, though:
I can’t wait to try it on my actress and put it together in the fashion fabric!
