ENLARGING THE BACK PIECE OF THE WAIST COAT PATTERN

In my last posting, we traced and enlarged the front piece of our waist coat .in this video we are going to enlarge the back piece of our waist coat .try to ensure that  all the dots are joined together if a dot is out of line ,re-align the dot ,according to the pattern diagram.
connect all dots with the special acrylic curves .Draw straight lines first using the straight edge of the ruler and use the curved section to draw armholes and the neckline

After all dots are connected remember to transfer all symbols from the pattern diagram onto your own pattern.
Then remove the pattern diagram and mark the pin hole. This is where the pattern can be adjusted for short waisted and long waisted bodies.HAPPY TRACING.

JOINING THE PATTERN DOTS TOGETHER

In my last post, I traced and enlarged the front piece of the waist coat In this next video illustration,I am going to  join the dots together.this is when the acrylic rulers become useful expecialy the neck curve and the armhole curve.Care must be taken when joining the dots expecially the dots for the darts.that is why the original pattern must be in front of you so that while joining the dots you will be able to compare the final picture of your pattern with the original.HAPPY TRACING .

TRACING AND ENLARGING THE FRONT PART OF WAIST COAT PATTERN

Now that we have cut off the front part of the pattern for the waist coat from our photocopied pattern sheet, we are now ready to enlarge the pattern.so we will place our cut piece on our cutting board or table whichever one is more comfortable for you and use a transparent cello-tape which comes as part of the lutterloh system, to ensure that the pattern piece is held steady in one place.Before starting to trace , remember that all numbers for tracing from the burst to the top, the sleaves etc are always traced using the burst measurement .while the numbers from the waist downwards and trousers ,skirts etc are traced using the hips measurement all this is illustrated in the video .HAPPY TRACING WITH LUTTERLOH.
