Anonymous said: How do you figure out your patterns? Do you have any tips for translating from 2d to 3d? My patterns look ok on paper but when I sew and stuff them, they never turn out right... especially when I try to make things round like balls or head shapes. They always go wonky and lopsided...
Honestly my patterns are pretty much all trial and error, but through years of practice I eventually developed a good grasp of what works and what doesn’t. While I can’t explain exactly how I make my patterns, I can think of a few things that may be helpful. You problem may actually not be related to patterns at all actually!
(Under a cut cause woa this turned out loooooooong. Talking about testing, seam allowance, fabric, stuffing, clipping and how I make spheres using math)
Reblogging this for you guys because this is a great resource for pattern making, and explained in a much better way than I ever could.
