In this tutorial, I go over the three different types of drafting I employ in my work along with some of the basic tools. Part 2 on how to do a basic sloper coming soon!

How To Drape A Sweetheart Strapless Bodice (Beginners) by DanielaTabois

A friend who’s mother is a seamstress gave me this macrame technique test sample she had, sure I would find a way to use it. Well, of cause i could.

Holy Christ i LOVE draping!
And some of these makes make me feel like some kind of fire bender ninja warrior princess (especially that one way in the top middle)! 


Lovely little springy cardigan I made from Shibui Heichi (the color is called Cascade). This stuff was a little rough (literally) to work with, I kind of understand why it’s discontinued, it has zero stretch and my gauge was not as consistent as I would have liked. It looks beautiful now though, I’m tempted to make another one with a different yarn.
