I'm joining in again with Thursday's My Creative Space at Kootoyoo.
Clockwise from front:
- Traced pattern pieces from Simplicity 3504 Misses' tunic top
- Calico for constructing a toile (or "muslin"). This will be a trial-run of the tunic top to see how ... and if it fits. Or if it even suits me. All being well, the proper garment will be made up in a pretty cotton voile.
- Scissors, long ruler and sticky tape. I will need these to make a number of changes to the pattern pieces. This is my first proper bodice alteration - there is so much to learn! My chest, bust, waist and hip measurements each match a different commercial pattern size. (I'm not sure that I look quite as freakish as this would suggest, but let's just say that I am unlikely to pursue a career as a bikini model).
