Project

Upsized Donna Karan Design Tunic

What are you most proud of? Squeezing blood from a turnip in terms of laying out the pattern. There was not enough fabric left to toot my nose on. What advice would you give someone starting this project? The pattern pieces fit together like a Chinese puzzle. It takes some time to size up a design like this, so take your time figuring out the best places to enlarge so that all the angles of the resulting pieces fit together.
