RE: [TheCostumersManifesto] Duct Tape Double
- This is definitely a very good way to fit someone who is asymmetrical. One of the women I used this method to make corset and bodice patterns for was left lopsided after a major car accident - I don't think that I'd have been able to get such a great fit on her using a different method. I also didn't realize until after making the duct tape double/pattern and laying it flat that she was so lopsided.

pattern. I still use the pieces as templates to redraft to accommodate new proportions.
This method is great if you have the one shoulder/hip higher than the other problem.
