Sometimes writing about stuff to do is just as much fun as actually doing the stuff. Other times it is easier to sit around writing about the stuff rather than actually doing the stuff…
“KLOONPATRONE” means “Cloned Patterns”.
This blog is about my personal sewing projects, mostly cloning garments I self-draft, based on the idea of a pattern or inspiration picture. I have no pattern-drafting training, so I think what I do can be called “Organic Drafting”.
I have a pattern-following handicap: I have yet to make anything in which I do not modify the pattern in some way, whether by plan or by accident. I am The Duchess of the B-plan, Princess of the C-Plan and bloody QUEEN of the D(*ammit!*), E(*eeeeek!*) and F(***-it!) plans, because sewing projects seldom go as planned.
It is not about fashion. I have on occasion even cloned a blouse from my Grandmother’s bound volume of “Girls’ Own Annual” – around 1920. (Might still blog about it, maybe.) So, most definitely not about fashion.
EDIT: The page “WINDGEBEDE” contains once-off posts in my first language, Afrikaans, which might not always be about sewing. I use it just because I occasionally need a place to share thoughts until the mood swings again and I delete the post or replace it with another. Bear with me if you can not understand it or if it is irrelevant, and thank you for reading my sewing related posts.
