Over Spring Break, I attempted to draft the Capricious Reaper’s skirt. Since the skirt looks like it’s supposed to be created from crystal facets and my only references were on my tiny PSP screen, paper didn’t work so well for being able to create the whole picture. I did this instead:
First, I laid out one of my measuring tapes and yarn in a grid (the yarn gets pinned straight into the carpet), and then outlined the borders of the skirt. Then I stared at my tiny little PSP screen for about three hours and pinned everything out. It mirrors, so now that the whole skirt is laid out, I think the next step will be to transfer the individual facets to pattern paper, and keep this around for reference while making the skirt.
Ever have to do anything out of the ordinary to get a pattern drafted?
