woah you used cable ties instead of boning?! thats an awesome idea. Too bad i just went out and bought 5m of expensive boning I like how it looks with lacing at the front and the back. but is it hard to get on?
the pattern is from the book Pattern Magic, which i am DYING to get my hands on. i cant find the other users photos that posted a closer photo of the page in the book explaining how its done. but its so clever, the way its put together and how it doesn't waste any fabric. im just about to make my own version!! exciting hope this is what you're looking for.
i found a pattern in my local op shop from the 80s, and i seemed really clever and easy. but it turned out wayy to big, so i added a colar, cuffs and lining, and wear it as a jacket, instead of a shirt.
The sleeves are hilarious, but soo comfortable!! the inside is spotty. im still yet to put buttons on the front :/ i think ill make it double breasted, so its more fitted around waist.
cute, i love vests. i think i have an obsession with them hehe. I'm trying to find a pattern that fits well with out having to use darts(because i am sick of sewing them) does this one have them? also do u mean like interfacing to make the vest stiffer?
preetttty, the skirt would be easy to make, but because of the shape of the bust and its strapless, there are lots of patterns around that have the heart shape neckline, but you might have to add lots of interfacing or padding to get it to stay that shape ? i would love to see it if you figure it out
looks like two legths of thick fabric(one for each side) joined at front and at back so it sits flat over shoulders with "v" neck (and v at back of neck). then the fabric is just pleated forward every 3 or 4 cms by about 3 cms and sewed down with 2 parallel lines. hope i helped !
