Is this listing of steps accurate?
Yes, they work beautifully for the neck.
I’m just having difficulty in applying them to the sleeve & armscye
My pattern resizes ok for size 30 and sews out very nicely for size 34.
What I have been doing since I found Valentina in February is… The local people have a ‘traditional’ dress that they call a Voorskoot. Directly translated, Apron. It is a straight forward bodice with a cross-over back, which has ties that one ties in a bow or something in front. It has short sleeves and a full circle skirt. Therefore, nothing really complicated.
My elderly friend bought a Singer hand sewing machine in December (since she doesn’t have electricity) with a view to make these aprons for extra income. She would like patterns that fit from 2 years old right up to over size 50. And I have offered to make these patterns for her. She has already made one in size 34 and says that it worked beautifully. She will bring it to me to see tomorrow.
But now I can’t make her a pattern in any other size as the armskye and sleeve pull skew and out of shape with the resizing. So I’ve changed the neck lines according to your method above but am totally stumped at the armskye and sleeve. Where do you get the points from that will be used with the Curves with Points as Control Handles tool?
While I am busy with this project, I am learning to use Valentina and also learning to make patterns in general, and I feel that it’s really a brilliant thing that you have contributed so much by providing the program that I hesitate to ask for lessons on pattern making. So thank you very, very much for all your help.
