Rants, Raves and Recipes from the Edge of Sanity
Taking up fashion design now? Fairgate 12-112 TerryFla
So I look up French Curve (it really is one) and find this:https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lesbian_rule Who knew. Terry again.
I used those eons ago when drafting was manually done vs. today's CAD (computer aided drafting). It was a real craft back then and a pretty good physical workout, standing over a desk and drawing lines without staining the vellum underneath. The French Curve was used to draw leaders (lines pointing to objects from notated text).Alas, no more for the most part. Much faster to do by computer, but it takes only the knowledge, not the craft. I know (who gives a shit about craft - I want it now!) but I took pride in doing that back then.
See? That IS where ya measure from! I told ya I was a 9!
