  1. Been meaning to see the Isabella Blow exhibition at Somerset House for a while - it finishes next week so will go on Friday. Hoping to get some inspiration for the design of my next corset - which is to be worn by one of the models at the Oxford Conference of Corsetry in August. We get half an hour and a photographer - all good stuff for portfolio & web images.

    I have only just started drafting my own patterns and realised that the 15 years experience I have using AutoCAD can be put to very good use.

    I took a photo of my paper pattern pieces, imported the .jpg file into AutoCAD, traced around the lines, scaled it, matched up the waistline, bottom and top seams, and voila!, an easily scalable, changeable drawing that I can print off to my heart's content.
