I want to make a skirt and jacket. They need to have asymetric hems and be slightly ‘hippy’. Think a sort of power dresses Professor Trelawny! :D
I have Wild Ginger software and all sorts of fancy books. I tossed them to one side and dug out Winifred Aldrich’s Metric Pattern Cutting For Women (my 1985 edition, bought for three quid from a charity shop!). I now have a hand drafted block pattern, and am cutting a block toile from this. Once I have checked the fitting, I shall play with the pattern and fidget with the style lines, and see where we get to.
I have 8m of 56"/145cm wide silk mix tweed to play with. I’ll need to line it. I’m thinking lined skirt, unlined flowing jacket, and Something Else (probably not trousers because of the nature of the fabric).
This is my kinda fun.
