We first drew a horizontal line the width of the hips plus 1cm total for ease. That's not a lot of ease but ease is essential if we're going to be able to try this on. as little as is feasible to make a proper block.
Subtract a 1/4 of the waist measurement + 0.6cm tolerance from points 4 from 10
I.e. 4 from 10 = 22.8cm
1/4 of waist + 0.6 cm tolerance =16.8cm
Difference = 6.0 cm
I'm ready to post this brief blog but can't with no photos. The only photo that shows, even though I took more, is blurred. Well, I'll save as a draft and go to bed with a hot toddy - everything might look better in the morning!
|Darts nearest are wrong, darts behind - I have marked in narrower darts and rubbed out outer markings|
I have modified the basic drawing. See the difference between that and the original? Equals one far too tight skirt if I hadn't modified!
|Can you see the difference?|
Moral - check and double check, then check again!!
