The last few days’ time and spare thoughts have been devoted to my entry in BurdaStyle’s Design and Pattern competition. The last few nights I’ve spent cutting, pivoting, and taping pattern pieces, making quick and dirty muslins out of bedsheets, then repeating the process. I even had a burst of inspiration while I was waiting for Emma Pollock (her of the Delgados) to come on stage on Thursday night and scribbled some ideas into my notebook then and there.
I finally got to the stage today where I was happy enough with my pattern to actually make it out of my nice fabric and sew it up, and I even had a chance to embellish it with a few leather scraps. I’m wary of posting my entry while the competition is still open, so I’m afraid you’ll have to wait a few weeks until I can post the photos!
