I Made a Thing!

A half-scale thing! A half-scale mannequin thing, so that I can experiment with patterns and toiles without committing to using up a huge amount of time and fabric. Hurrah! Fun times ahead!


I used the amazing tutorial from Grow Your Own Clothes, but I made mine out of coutil and stitched it together, rather than making it in craft foam. I couldn't get the right foam and I was keen to get on and make the mannequin! I think it worked pretty well. I still have to check the measurements, though.

Now I just need some half-scale patterncutting tools and then the half-scale world is my oyster!
