Sketching a master plan

I’m working on a new dress up project for a statue like this one and this


Since the statues so far have been less than life size, and don’t have moveable limbs, I’ve had to come up with the patterns myself, This has been an unexpected freedom. When I started sewing I made my own patterns, but with experience I just realized that the professional ones were so much better and had thought of all sorts of details for a better fit (Duh) These days I adjust existing patterns to get the look I want.

But it’s been refreshing going back to drawing patterns and even more to cutting the fabric free hand. It’s faster for one thing.

  1. I had not realised what a challenge it would be without movable limbs!
