If anyone is in any mild confusion as to why I am so obsessed with Patterns, this should help clarify. This is what you can do when you know how to flat Pattern cut, when you know the subtle nuances of fit and fiber, and when passion and creativity take over and elevate you from the norm.
This is what I do, to a slightly lesser degree and sometimes in a vary different fashion because I am a Costumier, but this is what I do. In making a Costume I will go through every stage you see here, the careful planning and cutting, the delicate ironing and shaping, and the constant, obsessive checking. And boy, do I love every minute!
