Pleats on this dress - how did they do that?
The pleats on this intrigue me - especially the way they migrate to the second yoke type, turning slightly inward but obviously it was the same pattern piece used differently.... HOW did they do that? I hope I won't have to buy the pattern to find out.
There are a pair of blue shorts waiting to be made + Esme needs lots more pants and shorts (ripped one pair today at the lake and never seem to have enough)
The green size 5 is still holding a lot of pins because you have never finished the bottom hem on it!
With the basic size patterns already in the box (dress, coat, pants in sizes 3, 4 and 5) - almost everything else is just trial and error.
Still one of my favorite things is to look through all of the patterns for sale on Ebay and find the bits of patterns that are interesting - make me wonder how they did that -- and wonder if I need to know badly enough to interrupt other projects I need to do. And especially, do I need to know badly enough to buy their pattern?
