Episode 7: Introducing #pfDrafty

In this week’s episode, Jenny and Beverly discuss April’s theme: #pfDrafty! The connection to the clue was very weak (we know it!) – “Blowin’ in the wind” –> Drafty –> Draft your own garment or part of a garment.

The importance of ease

Side by side photo of Jenny wearing a skirt with the full ease intended by the designer on the left and with less ease on the right.
Photos to demonstrate the difference in how a garment looks using a different ease than the pattern is designed for. Both are lovely skirts, but the point is – they are not the same skirt.
