Alls going well with writing up the new pattern....touching wood...

I hope it'll ready to publish in 7-10 days, then I'll get back to finishing and publishing the Scarlett tunic and jacket and that will be released to the wild hopefully by mid September. Heres some more pictures of samples

I finished the pattern making and made this sample for the Scarlett Jacket

....that was a week ago...

then I got all enthused and side tracked to work on this skirt pattern.

The "Hester" skirt is circle skirt on a basque with elastic waistband that has 5 options to decorate the surface. Heres pictures of 3 and I have some more samples to complete.
