The purpose of this blog is to share tips of the needle trade with those of you who are as passionate about the creative process as I am. I have been an independent tailor/designer for the past decade and before that I was a fine artist.

And so-knitwear…..I learned alot working on this one of a kind piece that can be found on my ETSY store

First of all, I think the most important thing that I learned was this—when applying pockets, a 3/8″ edgestitch always looks better than a 1/4″ edgestitch—which has to do with principles of proportion.

An odd proportion always appearing more dynamic and interesting than an even proportion.  

What do I mean by this? 1 to 3 or 3 to 5 always appears more dynamic than 1 to 2 or 2 to 4.

If you are reading this far, the difference that a quarter of an inch makes must show up somewhere on your radar screen.

 I learned something else, too, but I’ll tell you later. : D
