Where do patterns come from? Paper!

It all starts with a photo. At least in this case, a photo from Teva Dunham's LoopdLoop lace book.
No, I don't want to make the leaf cravat.
I want the shirt.

So there are no notes as to where the clothes came from, and Dunham's website isn't listing much of anything right now.

So, time to get drafting.
Or folding, in my case.

These little pieces of paper fold up to be the bodice.

The muslin bodice and sleeve sloper (hey, I got..uh.. wider) is done.

to be continued......

  1. Just drifted over here after your comment on my blog. Blouse is awesome. Let me know how it goes! I am not slim so this would be a challenge for me to copy, but I DO love it.
