redrafted fun.

I have been doing a little sewing recently.
I got a pattern on trademe(a new zealand based version of ebay) for this dress:
When it came time to make it the instructions were missing and the collar pieces indecipherable.I redrafted a new collar from experience and guess work and now I have this:
(sorry it is sideways,I forgot to edit it)
I never knew why people re drafted patterns before but now I do.I moved darts and shortened the bodice and wow!!I have a waist!and boobs!!
That concept is new:)
It turns out it wasn't me having figure flaws it was modern clothes having drafting flaws.
I now need to make this $4 find:
I will definitely redraft this pattern first.
Lesson learned.
