Finally, some rest for the wicked…everybody else will have to stay awake

The Back Bodice Block Pattern is done. Must remove reference lines, pretty it up and give it a nice bouncy shine. Commented code as I went along because I remember nothing from day to day. Three months ago I had never written any  object oriented code, and never used illustration software. Now I’ve hit this milestone – the Back Bodice pattern block.  I will try to post the files on the wiki tonight while catching up on Xena, maybe a re-viewing of ZardOz. All the guys are out of the house.  It’s just me and the sherbert (uh, sorbet?) between now and Sunday afternoon. I honor and revere my slack.  It’s the source of my super powers.

The link to the .inx and .py files can be found on my wiki page Current Code Files

    I’m so impressed with what you’ve been developing, Susan, How can I help…I’ve got some drawings of garments, do you need me to do any beta testing?

    Pete, thanks for the offer! The bodice front .py code should be finished within a few days, and the bodice file will be savable to take to a printer (doesn’t cost much to print these out). Use it on yourself if you want – I’d love to see how it works out. And try it out with a friend or two. I especially want to see closeup pictures if there’s any problem with fit. My goal is finish and test by NEXT WEEK!!!!!

    And after that I’m adding male-body pattern blocks. That’s only fair, and I’m totally curious.
