Draping a skirt

draping a skirt with darts

front darts pinned down

back darts

final result, but i have some excess fabric bellow the darts, and a depression

second attempt but the depression is still there

side view of the depression


This blog will document my journey as I teach my self to make clothes from scratch. I decided to use dolls to learn how to sew. I will only need little bit of fabric so I can afford to make mistakes. Am currently using Barbie doll. This is what I have done so far(I wish I documented everything step by step so other ppl can learn from my mistakes)
one of my first attempt at a basic bodice, this was
done by draping fabric on the doll.
