A line frock Variation 1


Using the draft of “A “line frock as basis we can create many different types of dresses
Here is one such dress.
Prepare a draft of” A “line frock as explained here without extension at the shoulder




Mark point X on the fold 2” below line C- E as shown in step 1


 
Cut along the line X-E and separate the front draft in two portions as shown in step 2

While cutting the fabric ½” is added along the line X-E on both portions as shown in step 3

 
You can keep the draft of the back as it is or you can cut it into two pieces as we did for the front.
Cutting and stitching
Cut the two portions of the front in different colours.
Join them together taking care that there are no wrinkles near the “V” shape.
Rest of the rest of procedure is same as that of “A” line frock.

Hi Can you upload a link to draft a simple A line frock. All I see on your blog are variations to the A line frock but there is no A line frock draft. I am stitching 1st time for my daughter and i wanted to do a frock with short sleeves and back buttons. Can you please upload steps to draft such simple frock?

vani said...

I have explained preparation of the draft of A line frock. Omit extension at the shoulder.

Thanks vaniji I got the pattern but I have one more question. Will I have to add some more width to the draft in case I want to have button opening at the back from neck till waist? Opening is helpful since my baby doesn't like anything going from her head.

Thanks again.
