TIPS BEFORE TRACING UPPER FRONT PART OF OUR SUNDRESS

We will begin our journey in tracing the top front piece of our sundress, by bringing to your attention little but important points that must be observed when enlarging the pattern .Take note of the dots that make up the darts and make sure you align your lutterloh tape very carefully especially observing dots with double numbers on the same line.Also take note of the alphabets on the original pattern.
You can find out the meaning of each alphabet on page eight of the lutterloh catalog.Notice also that not all lines are straight some are disjointed .disjointed lines means that that area is where the material to be used is folded.while straight lines mean the side of the material that should be cut.The video below illustrates more.HAPPY CUTTING.
