I’ve made a top from “leopard and lace”. I called this project “Breaking the rules” because I really broke the rules of sewing when I cut the fabric. Only one piece was cut lengthwise grainlines – the bottom front. The other pieces were cut crosswise to make the stripes of the fabric show the interesting pattern construction (pattern #103 Burda 5/2013). I made the pants from Signature in “Deep Navy”. The photos are made at Bate Cave Mountain , NC.
