Today I tried drawing my first Lutterloh pattern...
I picked this simple, but lovely skirt:
The Lutterloh patterns are miniatures. With a special scale ruler you are able to convert the pattern to your own size. With help of the ruler and given distances from a certain point, you're able to convert the pattern to your own size.
It was real fun making the pattern. It reminded me of my childhood. Like the drawings I made back then, you have to connect dots with each other to make something out of it.
After I was finished, I checked the measurements and it seems a little too big. But I don't make any changes yet, I prefer fitting the skirt on my body and then alter the patterns.
A couple of days ago I finished the 40s/50s inspired blouse. This weekend I will make proper pictures, but i couldn't wait. So here is a preview:
The skirt I finished a while ago. It's a full circle skirt. Above the hem I added two rows of white ribbon. As a subtle detail I added 2 tiny bows on the ribbon:
I hope you like it!
