pattern making

A stack of lovely fabrics has been waiting in my beckley office (otherwise known as the junk room) to be turned into something. So I'm experimenting with making my own pattern.

I started by taking a couple of tops that are my favorites and sort of taking the best ideas from both, I created my own pattern on some tissue paper. I had hoped to keep it pretty simple (essentially side seams, hems and some elastic at the waist), however I ran out of fabric along the fold so I had to turn 2 pattern pieces into 4. I think it will add a bit of interest but we will see how it turns out. So far so good!
