The last Pattern Puzzle generated some curiosity so I have decided to take it from the "what a great idea" stage to reality. This will reveal all potential issues as we work our way through all stages of prototyping to the final sample.
To begin I have a Production sketch with clear front and back views. For this pattern I am using my undarted kimono block to begin my pattern plan. When working with this block I tend to work the back and front on top of each other. The reason is that so much of this block is the same front to back with the exception of the necklines and the shoulder/overarm line. (If this is not clear please comment and ask - always, always happy to respond). Pic below is the entire pattern plan, with more detail in the following images.
