I set this up as a place to work on making Design Choices.

With the busy holiday season here we may not have time to really sew but we can play with different design ideas.

I will post Design Challenges.

Everyone is welcome to post their own Design Challenge.  They can be something you are working on or just something you are thinking about.

Hows about the hip friendly 6 gore skirt? I'm picking at this one myself and finding there's more to it than I thought... The trick is figuring out what part of the wearer's shape needs enhancement or hiding.

If you scroll down the page, there's a yellow version that I love...maybe for spring

Is the Tessuti you're looing at the same one as in Australia?

Yes Sarah, you're right.

Karen, so far I've used the swing cape and modified a bit in PE.
The inspiration cape has darts at the neckline, I'm not sure how to incorporate them
as I assume the sloper darts were already moved to the hem.
Probably not necessary anyhow.

The hood, I still want to work on.
I'd like to change it to the type of hood with a straight rectangular piece inset down the back.
This will be a good exercise with darts as I plan to make a sort of princess seam down
each side of the hood to accomplish the look I want.
First time I've ever thought of the back of my head as a bust circle .

I'd like help with this Vogue pattern # 8747.

I'm unsure how to go about dart transfer with princess seams.

Hi Jill, this could just be decorative fullness and not a dart at all. If you have a princess pattern that you like you could slash it at the front and add extra to gather back to fit the band. A quick muslin would show for sure.

I've had two blouses like this, and they fit great because of the center fullness (D cup here, and most RTW blouses don't fit).

Isn't there a center dart option for a blouse with a front closure?

Yes there is. But you can't use it with a princess seam.  Or the band. Looks like some work in PE is inevitable.

I think that it could be decorative like you suggested, but I'm curious to know if there's another way to do it in PE.

Any takers for creating a pattern from a picture?

If you need help putting up a picture, send it to support@wildginger.com and I can start the thread and post the picture.
