Loved the croquis article. I used my photoediting software to convert the images to line drawings, then copied the results to an Excel workbook where I resized the images, brightened them to pale gray, and arranged them 8 per sheet. I’ve been playing with the combinations as suggested in the article. It’s the first time I’ve really seen how proportions work, and playing with hem lengths is so much easier. Great job!
The “Fix Your Pattern” article was informative, too: I’ve had a couple patterns where things just didn’t match and I couldn’t figure out what was wrong.
