I have just joined this discussion and look forward to the discussions. I will proably be a lurker more than a writer as my life seems to be full.
I am a “mature” person with changing body shape. I could stand to lose a few pounds, but I am not desparate about that.
I recently returned from a textile study trip to France. While there I purchased 2 lengths of beautiful wool challis and want to make a skirt taking advantage of the wonderful pattern that will offer a challenge.
Several years ago (I think–mind is fuzzy) Threads ran an article about drafting a skirt pattern using body measurements. I have several years of the magazines and have looked in indexes for this article. I can not find it. Can anyone offer suggestions for the article?
It is cool and crisp here in Washington State and I just finished making potato leek soup. Lunch may be early today.
Thanks for any help you can offer.
