Making the perfect body block

The whole of last week was spent in painstakingly perfecting the basic body blocks with the help of my beloved H.J. Armstrong book. I made the pattern pieces a total of 4 times and finally got what i thought was the perfect fit for my body. I used the standard size measurements 10 for everything except the waist and hip, coz my muffin top doesn’t fit into the standard size . I used personal measurements for those..With the final pattern in hand, i made the test pieces (bodice front, back, sleeves and skirt front and back). I tried it on nervously….and…yay!!!!! I could wear them without having to hold my breath and tuck my tummy in..phew…thank the galaxy…i can never sit and make another body block if this hadn’t fit me…

This week I’m making a dress with basic bodice and skirt pattern, except i made the neckline a square and sleeves, elbow length…will post pics soon..cheers
