Pattern drafting

I’ve been drafting up a storm after discovering the pattern books and pattern drafting books at the library lately.  So far I’ve sewn two pairs of shorts and four (pairs of)  underwear for myself and a pair of tights for my daughter and four pairs of tights to sell.
I’m currently working on a dress shirt for myself.


This is the first yoke I’ve ever sewn and I’m pretty excited about it.  I’m using chiffon in red and black, and I’ve altered the pattern so that the buttons run up the right hand side instead of the middle.  I’m not sure what it will look like on,  but I’m ecstatic that the cut pattern pieces match and especially that the sleeve matched the armhole! 
The main reason for my excitement is that I had to add 15cms to the width of the pattern as well as adjusting the sleeves O.O.

Anyway!  What’s on your creative agenda?
