I signed up for the Pattern Review Wardrobe contest and most people seem to prepare a Storyboard showing each of their items and patterns. I was getting a bit bogged down with mine. I've looked through every pattern and pattern mag, traced loads of patterns, fossicked through my fabrics, discovered I don't have 10 fabrics that go together (unless they are all black) - and got stuck at 8 of the 10 required items. Even then I keep changing my mind.
My Storyboard so far (subject to change as the mood strikes me) is:
My wardrobe isn't very varied as you will see. Not one but 2 biker jackets! And 4 pairs of pants! But I'm aiming at casual clothes that I'll wear while I am on long service leave and I should wear these.
So, finally, I've started my first garment which is a jacket from Burda Mag. 12/2009. I have to confess I traced off 3 patterns and made muslins for each before settling on the one to make.
First try - nah, too blouson.
In this fabric, which is a bit shimmery but not quite as shiny as the pic suggests.
