I have a lot of pattern pieces. And free time.
Guess I have a book to read
Click on the internal links: this 'digital' book is a treasure trove of information.
If you go through the entire chapter, you will have pretty much name checked every flat pattern designer who doesn't work for SimMcVogerick (will work out a good name for the Big One sooner or later).
And to quote verbatim:
"A common denominator between these cutters is that they emphasize the pattern, itself, as a tool for creation. By experimentation and transformation of patterns, either through block patterns or other shapes, they find new shapes and ways of designing for the body. As Roberts (2008) notes, one problem that may arise is that the garments may end up as walking patterns that have little to do with the body wearing it."
(chapter two, page five, bottom of the page)
The Demented Fairy can vouch for that one
|How to wear, how not to wear?|
So will I get something I can assemble, and even more fabulous thinking: alter to fit me?
