A window into the chaos of my millinery and the paths that I follow to make sense of developing a sustainable venture around hats.

Another sample garment
Now I have remembered how to use my sewing machine and have the concentration span to do so, I have been endeavoring to explore some pattern cutting techniques from the excellent Pattern Cutting book by Dennic Chunman Lo from Laurence King Publishing. As someone whose brain fogs terribly at the sight of a pattern book or instructions the straightforwardness of this book is most welcome. So here is creation number 1 not quite finished, I need to look for some instructions on facings first!
Bodice block joined and spliced
new vertical pattern for bias bodice
Laid on fabric
Once I have it all worked out it will make a great dress.
