I gathered my supplies and tore off a strip of paper (I'm lucky - one of my business clients is a printing company and they give me the end of their rolls - apparently they go though about 1000 rolls a week!!!!!). I have copied the pattern so that I don't have to ruin the page and I also made an enlargement for these old eyes to see the numbers better (not to actually use of course - but to refer to).
I then started on the design of my pattern. I drafted the pattern according to the tip from tucci4me on Pattern Review website (thanks Tucci4me!) and used my upper bust measurement for dots until halfway down the armhole and then I used my full bust for all of the rest of the dots - so we will see how this goes. I didn't add the FBA as well as this is a knit pattern and therefore I think it should be okay.
It took about 20mins for me to almost finish the first part of the 3 piece pattern
And then I ran into trouble. One side of the where the pattern separates did not seem to match the scaled drawing - However it even looks to me like the pattern itself may be wrong????? I mean - I am new to sewing so what do I know - But it looks like the lines that need to be followed will actually give the results I got...... Am I supposed to get these results and not a diamond shape with a straight line underneath like the pattern??
This is what mine looks like
|There is no *diamond* shape with the right side being straight|
|And the dot that comes off the diamond is not straight down - the light line is where the dot goes and the darker line is as in pattern|
