Garment jigsaw

I like to think that dressmaking is rather similar to a jigsaw puzzle, there are separate pattern pieces (bodice, skirt, trouser, sleeve, collar) which when combined artfully and correctly using skillful sewing techniques, produce a garment that reflects style and/or trend.

I really enjoy putting the pieces together and when I am done, the eureka feeling is everything!

Coincidentally, the floor covering in my  bedroom has a multi-colored jigsaw pattern 🙂 .
