Winter Uniform

IMG_8974Back in uniform.  For the last few years I’ve been making my clothes out of panels – with a few similar panel options for each season.  But I’ve been missing the more stringent “one garment at a time – all the time” dictate – it’s just easier, and it’s also so much more challenging  to make a garment that you know you are going to have to wear a LOT.  The leather skirt is second hand and works great with wool thermals layered underneath…   really warm when the desert gets cold.  And I crocheted the sweater out of really beautiful variegated grey merino wool.   Also worth mentioning is that in summer of 2013 I finished two decades of uniforms.  So its now going into the 21st year of this project…  amazing!

    I’m also very fond of your uniforms, and the whole uniform concept, I admire your work a lot. I’d like to make a smock dress for the summer, but everywhere I look the link to your basic shell pattern is not working. Is it still available? If so, where can I find it? Thanks!

      I can email the PDF of the smock pattern to the address attached to your message – If others are interested in the pattern too, perhaps I can figure out a way to put the PDF on my website, or even link it to this blog. Thanks!
