Tidbits #4

Dear readers,

I hope you are enjoying the weekend. I am finally catching up on the sewing plans that I have been delaying and I'm making some progress. For today's edition of Tidbits, I gathered some information about making an arm for your dressform.

Sewing Bits

  1. First I want to mention this nice blog to follow : Note to self. I just love the short note style and the pretty nordic pictures!

  2. This post from Cloning Couture, is what reminded me about arm making. Mary is even offering her pattern for free!

  3. I drafted mine (above) from a book one of my professor had when I took classes at FIT Integrating Draping, Drafting and Drawing. I'm fairly certain this is the method referred by Pandemic Apparel, unfortunately the post is old and all the pictures are gone...

  4. The last one, I'm terribly curious about. It's from researcher Richard Lindqvist who writes all sorts of complicated and interesting things about pattern making. His free pattern is a 3D simulation of an arm. It looks so unusual. If anyone makes it, I hope you will let me know!!

Other Bits

  1. I'm not a quilt person, but I thought those modern designs by Louise Gray were very pretty and would fit very nicely in my apartment...

  2. I have a total crush on the Fall 2017 RTW collection by Christian Dior. I just want to dress in subtle shades of navy all day, every day!

  3. Talking about Dior, here is an nice Instagram account of a "petite main" who works as an extra during runway season. Enjoy!

That's it for today, I hope you still find Tidbits interesting! Please let me know what you have been reading/watching/listening to!
