Sometimes you need a rest from sketching, so I thought I’d brush up on an old skill. Dressmaking proved to be a good way of doing just that.
I made a toile.
A top and a skirt.
Adjusting the waistband.
I won’t take the idea any further but it was good to do something totally different. The break will bring a fresh perspective to what I’m working on. It all starts with having a clear pattern.
