fashion illustrated – Sevin-Doering pattern puzzle
Once again Kathleen at Fashion-Incubator provides an irresistible puzzle for a fashion illustrator who also fancies herself pretty keen on patternmaking. As before, the challenge is to guess what the garment looks like based on the flat pattern alone. This time, the designer is Geneviève Sevin-Doering. Here are the flat patterns:
The red one on the left seems pretty straightforward in a slightly crooked way. The blue one on the right baffles me. This guess at the garment is really just a wild stab in the dark. My theory is that it is a two-in-one garment, either double-layered (as drawn here) or with two separate sets of armholes to allow the wearer to don the garment in two different ways.
I haven’t tried to peek at the answers yet – I’ll wait until Kathleen does the reveal next week.
