I have always been fascinated by clothing construction, therefore it was logical for me to focus on garments. I narrowed the stitch pattern options to lace, cables, and colorwork and organized them into the themes: Lovely in Lace, Covered in Cables, and Creative Colorwork.
Lovely In Lace
Every designer has a different approach, mine is architectural.
Precise measurements are at the foundation. I begin with a picture or sketch that conveys the “feeling” of the garment, then match it with a pattern stitch. I then transfer those ideas to a formal schematic. I use the schematic measurements to create the building blocks for the design construction.
