We use Lay plans to cut down on the wastage of fabric. This is very important in industry as every penny counts, as they produce by the masses, even a little bit of fabric wasted could become very costly.
Below are some examples of my lay plans.
Above is the lay plan for the feature on my bodice, I have drawn the same pattern out in tailors chalk multiple times to show how I will try to reduce waste.
After I had completed my lay plans, I moved on to creating my sleeve. I have cut out the pieces, ironed on the interfacing and sewed the strip in place.
