This vintage-inspired worksheet introduces you to Gil Brandao, a pattern maker and teacher of exceptional skill. This Vintage Pattern Making Worksheet expands on his ideas and is well detailed including a size guide (sizes 6-22) so you're able to self-draft to your own size. There are 15 step-by-step pages of content including sketches, diagrams, photos and garment making tips to help you have the best success in making your pattern. The PDF is designed to be viewed on an iPad and has only one pattern making instruction on each page.
You'll need some pattern making paper and the usual pattern making equipment. These instructions are for the vintage bodice only but the addition of a circle skirt will quickly turn this bodice into a vintage dress.
