No blogging but lots of pattern making..

The last two weeks have been pretty productive. I have been cheating on my blog with pattern making, but im happy with what iv managed to finish. I realised blogging is not that easy if there is a toddler running around. She manages to hear the subtle sounds of the keyboard from the other end of the house…the keyboard has suffered major trauma under her hands..

Anyway..the week before last, i completed the chapter on double darts and to celebrate it, i made a dress with a shoulder tip dart and waist dart..see the pics..i dont think the darts are visible though..you can see the line drawing to get an idea..

I did a sleeveless version and added bias binding on the neckline and armhole..it fits me very well..i just need a nice black belt for it though..the skirt is a full circle skirt.. The front is open with lots of buttons..I can never get the hang of making button holes on the machine..you can see that its a little messy..hmm…

Last week i started on the chapter on designing with darts…phew..its getting pretty tough i must say…I have been making all kinds of stylelines, curved darts, cape like darts…its exciting though.
