Pattern Cutting

For the last week I have been on a pattern cutting course, which has redirected me focus slightly from morse code blocking.  It was fabulously interesting and equally as fabulously difficult.  It did test my patients on multiple occassions.  However, I stuck it out and at the end of the four days I ended up with an actual skirt that fitted me!

A bitty visual documentation of the process

Frida as inspiration

and the final result...

                        ...and back...
   I know it's not an Alexander McQueen but i'm dead proud of it.  It made the continuous unpicking and restitching worth while.  Definately recommend it! Plus I met some great people :)

Up to the letter P now, slowly getting there.  I like how it is forming, the shapes and colours hold their own quite well.

obviously I couldn't have done it with out the help of a certian little friend
