There are a group of videos on youtube showing examples of the TR pattern design process. There's also a book available with DVD's at www.centerforpatterndesign.com. I've purchased the book, and I'm waiting on it to arrive, so I'll share some of it with you when I get it.
I've done a little experimenting already and I have a couple of projects to show you.
1. Here's my take on a 3d design draping technique. I'm happy with the way it turned out for a first try, but next time I'll add less volume. I used a scrap of brown satin, which I backed with black cotton.
2. After trying the bodice, I thought I'd learned a little something, so I decided to try removing the dart from a pencil skirt pattern. I wanted to add a contrast design in the skirt so I cut a modified diamond shape in the front and back. I used a fun cotton print I had on hand and black pique fabric.
Sorry, I don't have the step by step photos. I was anxious to get it done. I'll be sure to take photos and explain the process next time.
TTYL...Stay tuned, there's more to see.
