Today’s post is exclusive for people who have purchased the Tasi Draft-It-Yourself pattern. If you own the pattern, the password to watch the videos can be found at the bottom of page 4 of the instruction booklet. If you have problems or questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Tasi Robe/Jacket is my first draft-it-yourself style pattern and while the instruction booklet has all the information you need, I thought it would be helpful to show you in video format how to use the pattern. In this video, I will show you the measurements you need to take and how to fill out the worksheets to create your own custom pattern pieces. Plus, a little bit of pattern drafting as well.
This bonus video is for those of you who use Adobe Illustrator. In this video, I’ll show you how you can quickly draft the pattern pieces in Illustrator and use them to estimate how much fabric you will need.
