Sewing: Simple Sew – #017 Sophia (Update 1 of 4)

Well I knew in my head that I would have to grade up the skirt of Sophia for sure. The Pleats were moved as well so they hopefully should sit perfectly.   Giving myself a high for staying sane on that one! Thanks Mum!

The instructions of the Sophia say to make a muslin toile before cutting any fabric, which I will do because I want to see where these pleats will lie now that I’ve moved them and added inches onto each edge. 

For sure I will be following this instruction!
Hopefully perfect pleats 😳

I remember doing some grading up for the green Butterick Dress and it seemed to be a tad easier, not only no pleats but the tutor on the class did most of the mathematical bits!!
The top of Sophia should be ok but I’m still going to make a toile, just to be sure! Haven’t adding any extra outwards but may add for length like Red W Sews did for hers but I will see what it’s like in toile form! 

I’ll update you as soon as I have done the toile!
