This blouse is a classic and timeless piece that you can wear for any occasion. It has a flattering fit, and of course, the iconic puff sleeves that make a statement.

Tools and Materials for Pattern Drafting

Pattern drafting allows you to customize the fit and style of your clothing, and express your creativity and personality. To draft your own patterns, you will need some essential tools and materials that will make your work easier and more accurate. Here are the tools and materials you need for pattern drafting:

pattern drafting tools
  • A large flat surface for working: You will need a spacious and smooth surface to lay out your pattern paper and draw your pattern pieces. You can use a table, a desk, a floor, or a cutting mat.
  • A large piece of paper, such as tracing paper, to draw your pattern on.
  • Drafting paper
  • A pencil, preferably with a fine point and a good eraser, to sketch and adjust your pattern lines.
  • Notebook
  • A French curve ruler. Grab my french curved rulers for free here.
  • L ruler
  • A measuring tape, to take your body measurements and check the length and width of your pattern pieces.
  • A pair of scissors, to cut out your pattern pieces and your fabric. Check out my detailed post and learn what scissors are the best for your project.
  • Tracing wheel: You will need a tracing wheel to transfer your pattern markings to another paper or to the fabric. A tracing wheel is a tool that has a serrated or smooth wheel at the end of a handle. You can use it to trace the outline or the details of your pattern piece, such as darts, pleats, or notches. There are two types of tracing wheels: pointed and blunted. A pointed wheel is used to transfer pattern shapes to the paper, while a blunted wheel is used with carbon paper to transfer pattern shapes to the fabric.
