Believe it or not, we’re close to done sticking velcro together.
Start a line of velcro at the front single princess line and pass it under the arm. If your victim has arms, intruct her (or him) to move them as little as possible to allow this. Seriously – the velcro is like, 1/16″ thick. Arms do not need to be raised to the ceiling for this action.
Continue around to the single princess line in back.
Put a single line of velcro down the body, inside the front half of the body. This will require slightly more arm moving, but try to avoid going past a 30 degree angle.
Now butt a second line of vecro right up next to that, inside the back half of the body. The true side line should be where these guys meet. Make sure they’re pressed firmly into all velcros they cross.
I’m going to take one more piece of velcro around the body, starting at the center front line and running close to the body under the fullness of the bust. If you’re a chesty-girl, you may find that this tugs the CF line in towards the bust – we’ll fix that later. This line gives you the information you need to do a contoured garment (like a Victorian corset). Take it around to the back single princess line.
The front is now complete, and should look a lot like this.
To finish the back neck, start with a velcro on the innermost princess line, at the shoulder. On the back of the body, obviously.
Pass this over the large bone in the back of the neck, and connect to the single princess line at the shoulder.
We can put in the center back velcro, ideally inside the right half of the body. Center back is a little easier to find than center front, because the spine.
Incidentally, if you have significant curvature due to scoliosis or a similar issue, you’ll probably want to do the full draft on both sides of your body. Your side seams are probably different lengths. As with center front, you’ll want to do side-by-side velcros at the center back if you’re drafting both sides.
I’m adding one more line of velcro across the middle of the shoulder in back (shoulder-tip line to single princess line), just to even up my grid a little.
The back is now complete, and should look kinda like this.
Coming next: that’s awesome, but how does it become a block?
