The "Eos" Back Drop April 01 2014, 0 Comments
The first question to ask yourself is how high you'd like to raise the back curve. Remember you can't raise it clear up to the back of the neck unless you want to insert a zipper or you can if you are using a knit fabric. The reason? It won't go over their head when dressing. I would suggest only raising the drop between 2-3". You also want to measure the child you're sewing for from the back of the neck to the waist and compare that to the pattern piece. You may find that the child is short waisted and you really don't have to raise it that high. It is designed to be above the waistline by 2".
Next using a French Curve, or an object that can mirror the curve of the back as closely as possible, align the curve then move it up to match the extension.
You'll repeat this with the back lining by laying the traced pattern a top the lining pattern to have an exact curve match.
It's as simple as that!
Now you can make an "Eos" without any back showing!
