Pattern Puzzle: Q Twist

Posted by Kathleen Fasanella on Dec 31, 2012 at 4:31 pm / Pattern Puzzle / Trackback


To close out the year, I thought another pattern puzzle would be in order. I was halfway tempted to post the solution as well because the solution still begs in depth discussion -I haven’t figured it out yet even though I have the answer.

This process has a proper name as designated by its originator but I regretfully omit it because you could do a search and find it. Actually, you probably could find it anyway but be kind and refrain from linking to it. Not that I wouldn’t discourage you because you would probably have more insight to share when I post part two.

For part two, I hope to hear from the designer as to method and process and also, why it is named as it is.

Until next year then. I hope your holiday is warm and wonderful with those you hold dearest.

Whoa!! What a great start for the year 2013. My wild guess would be that it’s made from a single piece of fabric, if it’s a knit dress maybe even from a tube, I can see no visible seams beside the ones that hold the folds together and looks like they are only ones that shape this dress, can’t wait to hear what others think.
Happy new year folks.

The designer of this dress has kindly agreed to write part two of the pattern puzzle. Stay tuned, it should go up on Thursday or Friday.

Yeah I’d have to agree with the continous piece of fabric idea. I remember that being an assignment in draping class and most of us loved it so much we draped a dozen of them. So much fun and less restricting in design even though it comes with a big old restriction.

It’s not a zero or minimal waste design method, is it?

I wonder if the fabric is cut out like a Q then draped.
