The first part of the workshop was to be able to drape fabric on the stand to be able to create a simple bodice to build upon.
This was achieved by laying calico on the stand and creating darts on the back and bust creating a fitted garment.
The next step was to take the final bodice off the stand and transfer into pattern pieces which the pictures below show the steps.
