I never noticed how I keep returning to rectangles until recently. I love making things so simple that only 1-3 rectangles are required, and are so simple to sew, that it even becomes hard to explain how it was done. I think these things are specific to my taste, but I love how duplicable they are, because of their simplicity. How well it turns out is only a measure of how "right" a fabric choice was made...
Examples of same garments that were nothing buy rectangles are below:
|The grommet laced shoulder...|
|The ever-changing cradle bag|
|A panel print just the right size to become a shirt|
|Rectangular scarf that became a vest by folding to the middle (back neck), and tying a knot|
|Beautiful pleats by International pleating, suspended from two rectangles of lace|
|A rectangle cotton knit t-shirt dress, with a vertical "scarf"|
So, there were quite a few other photos I was about to share, and then stopped short, thinking, "Oh yeah, it STARTED out as a/some rectangle(s), but then I decided to..."
So... yes... I often start with rectangles, and end up... well... wherever that sends me.
