Spring Grading Done!

I am finally finished with grading patterns for my Spring styles. It has taken forever. This is why the blog has been heavily focused on grading. I have one more grading blog entry on pants and then I promise to move on to something more interesting. Grading by hand is getting easier, but I still find it time consuming and tedious. If these patterns were graded by computer, everything would have been done in a couple of hours. Instead, these bodices, waistbands, and pants (not pictured), took me three weeks. The holidays threw things off and then DH's fender bender complicated things. I graded the pants three times because of errors. Finally, I slogged through the rest of it and I can finally move on. Up next are photos of Spring styles. Stay tuned!

  1. That makes me feel better because you know what you are doing and it took you three weeks! I don't know what I am doing with grading (and patternmaking) and am having a rough time indeed.
