Drafting, Fitting and Construction / The Art of Measuring - Whife
« Last post by Schneiderfrei on May 06, 2018, 10:38:15 PM »
I have been asked to re-post this chapter from Whife, The Art of Measuring.

This is a classic description of measuring from the English System.

The originals were scanned in a unusual way, with different horizontal and vertical dpi.  I have adjusted these images so that they are now easier to handle.

Patternmaking Reference / Whife's Chapter of Waist Suppression

I have been asked to re-post this chapter by Whife on Waist Suppression.

The 4 pages are followed by a related article from the Tailor and Cutter magazine.

I'm afraid the quality is the best we can get at this stage. If someone else has a better version, please get in touch.

Never thought of that. Sounds like a good idea. Is there a particular app you like?  Seen apps for measuring rooms, furniture, trees, pictures, etc. Some of them may have angles, too. An app would be really nice. Especially with uneven shoulders, because of two different angles.
Thanks for the idea to explore, posaune.

Construction Reference / Angle measureing - an app helps

Maybe you know it already. This days I stumbled over a gimmick which can help a lot to get a good construction. I have registered that the modern drafts are working much with angles. But the measureing is difficult.
And what is always dfficult is to see if a waist line is total level.
I'm an old lady and not used to do much with a tablet. But that is grandios. You can download an app which let you measure with you tablet or Ipod  par example the shoulder angle. Nice too to controll if the waistband sits 100% level. It is a big help. Nothing extra to carry around

Nice post! I also bought a Lycra mesh cut out leggings recently, the material is so soft and comfortable that you feel like wearing it all day long. I even go for casual lunches in these leggings. This is a very informative post, definitely shareable.

Drafting, Fitting and Construction / Re: shoulderpads

IMO: I have been taught to pad-stitch the shoulder-pad to the canvas then largish backstitch around the armhole seam allowance.
