Looks Like a Dress. It's Actually Math!

Detail: Lace neckline. Cotton, linen.
Sewing by hand is rhythmic. It's almost musical. Hand sewed a lace border around the neckline of a breezy, loose weave linen dress.

Been making garments (including this dress and the pirate pants) based upon geometric forms, measuring and cutting fabric without a pattern. The pages of notes for these garments are extensive and hilarious. (Must add a photograph to illustrate!)
