Do authors get stage fright?
Put ink to paper is one thing; distribution to the masses is another.
Entering the preliminary stage of “coming out of the closet” whatever your closet holds … It has cocooned you, your thoughts and your emotions. Popping out and diving head first into the outside world… is a unambiguous way to perceive the situation. However once you’ve left your closet you’ve only really entered into another cocoon…closet from which you either stay, retreat back to your prior closet or again venture out of the newly recognized enclosure.
With that said check out a few things I've been working on. Not all the garments have recognized patterns attached to them, some are deviations from original designs.
I introduce a Tom and Linda Platt design I chose from Vogue 1283. i like that its not an regular dress with just two side seams. I like the detail of the gathers.
