Spent Monday with Sonja from Lutterloh Patterns and drafted a collared shirt and a pair of trousers. Had a great day and learned heaps. Met some lovely ladies too.
I have even been able to sew up a pair of pants and wear them out last night.
|The original pattern for drafting|
Oversized buttonholes using your 1-step buttonhole.
What a great idea.

I love skirts and this book is delightful. I found it in the Beaudesert library
and have had it out more than once.
I actually haven't had the chance to make anything yet, but I really enjoy reading it
and looking at the pictures. I have drafted a pattern - for one day.
Reserve it for yourself
Need help to draft your own pattern?
