Drafting Initial Dress Patterns and First Toile (Part 1)

The drafting of my first toile was pretty straightforward because I only had to make a few changes to the standard dress pattern to create my desired shape. Firstly I lengthened the skirt to make it midi length, added in a waistband, created a sweet heart neckline and then adjusted the darts to make the bodice into four pieces so would fit nicely around the bust.
I also made the pattern piece for the insert to go between the collar and bodice. As you can see below when I had sewn the bodice, it proved to be a bit big at the side seams so I had to then adjust the patterns accordingly.
