Hi Maria,

Nice to meet you, and thank you for sharing your great knowledge of pattern drafting.

I was wondering if you provide purchased iBook about basic block patterns and of dart manipulations?
Was looking around on how to make really good fitted blocks and I am glad that I found you.
I am 59 year old with very little knowledge of internet technology, therefor it would be a lot easier for me to learn from actual book with me.


Looking forward to your reply.

Kind regards,

Diana.

Hello Diana,

I am actually in the process of preparing some ibooks, but it's going to take some time before they are published. I had actually just decided this about a month before this comment, and have been in the process of learning about how to create ibooks/EPUBS.

What I plan on doing is publishing little booklets; given that my step-by-step approach takes up a lot of pages, it would be one little booklet per topic.

So... sorry have nothing now, but hope to publish something soon.

Hi Maria,

Thank you for replying my message.

I look forward to your buckets, please do let me know when it’s ready to purchase.

One question please:
How do we determine the circular on burst size?

Kind regards,

Diana.

Dear Maria,

I found your website yesterday and I love it! Therefore I wanted to make a contribution. Is there another way to do so apart from PayPal, as I do not wish to use Paypal anymore?

Kind reagdrs,

Tanja

Hello Tanja

Unfortunately, the only way I can get the 'support' donations are through Ko-Fi and their only payment methods are Paypal and Stripe. (I don't know what Stripe is!).

Thanks for the vote of confidence, anyway!

I will soon be publishing some EPUB/Kindle booklets on an ongoing basis. I will be selling these through Amazon and Apple, etc. If you want to support me you can buy any of those booklets, as they become available. I hope the first one will be at the end of March, and then one every month after that.

All of my future content will be videos that will be available free on Youtube (and a link on my website)., but there will be an accompanying booklet people can buy. If may be easier to follow along with the step-by-steps in a book format (swipe, one step, swipe) than to be stopping the video, trying to rewind, etc.etc. Those booklets will be around $10.

Cheers
Maria

Hello Diane

Sorry about the delay in answering, I haven't been on my website for a while. Regarding the booklet, I won't be publishing that for a couple of months yet. I will send you a copy when it is published. Sorry, I thought that I did explain that I'm currently working on it and it will be a month or two before it's ready. I won't forget to send you an email when it's ready and to let you know how to access it.

Hi Maria, I’m just watching your new video for the bodice block. Are there any tips for small bust to go with it?
My upper bust is same as my bust, which sounds wierd....I do have a small bust, so my back must get narrower.....both 31” and then waist is 26”.

Do you have any suggestions please!

Thanks so much

The videos are amazing, so thorough and easy to follow.
Well done and thank youx

Hello Diane

No, it's not weird... and it's precisely because of this situation that I have refined my system. I am in the process of remaking the Bodice Front & Bodice Back videos. If you watch the Bodice Block Essentials Videos (there are 6 of them, but the theory is useful...), they should clarify the issue.

I suggest that if you want to understand the 'why' that you watch these videos before drafting the block with my new instructions. Which are 2-3 weeks away ....

I will be doing versions in both Imperial and Metric as well as an accompanying EPUB booklet... (That is.... Video Bodice Front Metric MM, Video Bodice Front Imperial MM, Video Bodice Back Metric MM,Video Bodice Back Imperial MM, EPUB Booklet Bodice Imperial, EPUB Booklet Bodice Metric.... I'm listing this just to explain why they are a few weeks away... Quite a bit of work involved).

I’ve drafted my front bodice block, so will do the back this weekend. Then I’m hoping to make a summer dress...something simple, flared skirt, maybe low front and back necklines....just something that fits me would be good!!!

Thanks again for all your hard work , from Heywood near Manchester, England xxx

Hello again Diane

On my website main menu, between Blog and About is Videos. All the videos are there, but you will have to scroll down to the bottom of then page then press the ‘Next’ button. Alternatively, go to my Youtube Channel and find them there. (I will paste the link at the bottom of this comment).

There are 6 videos in the Bodice Block Essential series, the first one is Patternmaking Bust Cups Vs. Bra Bust Cups.

Note that there is a mistake in the Bodice Back Video: there is a note in the Youtube description page... You need to add 1/2 inch to the Shoulder Length for the dart. See the written instructions on my website for that step. Let me know if you don’t understand when you get there.

The current instructions won’t be the best for you, given what you’ve told me above....

Re: Youtube link below...., Click on the ‘Dresspatternmaking’’ link underneath the video, underneath where it says ‘460 Views, March 8 2021”. That will take you to my channel and you can more easily see my videos (compared to my website). If you subscribe you will be notified when I upload my new videos....
