My workshop this weekend is on skirts. And drapery. Two polar opposites in terms of making but work together.


So I can do a conservative skirt, fully gathered/pleated (to waistband/yoke), very gored. And work through the waterfall drapery and then basically quote from resources at the time- you can’t work out a drapery pattern by looking at the finished garment in the 1880s. And it’s fairly true. So I’m collecting all the extant and contemporary ones I can find to put them into some sort of easy to visualise system.


Currently though printing All The Patterns so as to have them ready for the other workshops too 🙂
