pattern drafting

The plan is for 3 dress shirts for DH. The paper mess is from my drafting attempts to shorten the yoke, bring the shoulders to the true shoulder (instead of dropped), add some to the collar size, narrow the body, and add another inch to the sleeves. If this turns out right the first time, I’m applying to Chanel ;). But I’m starting with the dark cranberry shirting, so finagles and not-quite-rights should be ok, it’ll look like a more casual shirt anyway!

(And if I’m really lucky, I’ll be able to squeeze in something fun for me out of the same yardage… so I guess it’s double incentive to “make it work”!)

Wish me luck!
