One Pattern, Five Ways.

My new challenge (because my last one *remember - I was going to sew every day in September?* fizzled)

One Pattern, Five Ways.

These are my chosen fabrics, and I have chosen the Lydia Long Sleeve Pattern from Burda Style as the base pattern. Now this is good for me, I need structure and goals, but not deadlines! Plus with a base pattern like Lydia I can go anywhere and do anything. I'm branching into the world of altering patterns willy-nilly for my liking, and I'm excited.

Say hello to 1/5. It needs to be hemmed and it's a bit boring but it's made out of knit and is perfect for the office and the coming months because it's a vest. (of course to the office I will not wear the black bra underneath - sorry about that folks)

It's all thanks to Miss Veronica Darling's amazing froctober effort! She loves a good challenge, and actually finishes them.

So anyone who wants to join me on the quest to pattern emancipation, I'd love to hear from you.

I'm doing 3 dresses from 1 pattern... inspired by your challenge! 5 would make my head explode today I reckon!
