I’ve posted pattern puzzles aplenty. Today, Esther contributes a sewing challenge. Come to think of it, many past puzzles were sewing challenges too. So, perhaps this is the first in a new series. Thanks for the idea Esther. Feel free to submit an idea yourself.
I posted an entry on my blog today about a girl’s dress patent. I have attempted in the past to come up with a mass construction technique to create the design element on the upper skirt side. It might be an interesting challenge for the blog readers. The challenge would be in the construction technique rather than the pattern. The pattern may play a part, but I am not sure how. Anyway, something interesting to think about…
See Esther’s entry for her thoughts on the matter. Will you guys be posting there or here? Hopefully some will traipse back here too. While not the usual run of the mill in today’s production environments, it doesn’t look too difficult but then again, I haven’t tried it. It could be one of those things that’s more difficult than it looks.
Does anyone consider this pattern to be particularly difficult to execute and require instruction? Sing out if so. A sketch from the 1922 patent is below.
