Pattern Cutting Tutorial: How To Drape A Basic Skirt Block

Creative Video Workshops on Creativebug.comThis is a video of a basic skirt block draped and marked on the stand. Following this video, I will be demonstrating how to take this off the stand and block it onto paper for a master pattern. Once it's on paper, you will be able to see all the lines better and check that everything fits smoothly and that the lines are straight. This can then be used to create a variety of skirts.

PS in the video, my back darts have horizontal tension on the fabric, either side of my darts, I have just noticed this after it's been uploaded! To correct this, just loosen the darts and relieve the tightness.
