    I have had a quick look at your work on etsy. I love your free form draping. I don’t often look at etsy but your shop is very well presented and professional.

    I love the numerous projects you’ve posted. I thought it made more sense to tell you here than leaving a note for each posted project. Are these your original designs or made using a book on draping?

      The only book used was my really old Winifred aldrige book for the trouser block which was then slashed & spread to put in the room for pleats & then these pleats were closed up again in the finished pant.
      A standard close fitting block was manipulated again from a flat pattern cutting book (for the Twist Dress).
      The sweat, skirt, Sack Dress were made with no books just playing with the fabric on the stand.

      I have The Art of Dress Modelling by Lily Silberberg, but to be honest every time I pick it up I can’t figure out the instructions, it’s a hard thing to decipher from print with no 3D visuals.
      A DVD would be better.
