By now you know my deep love for basics. They are wardrobe workhorses and can make you look put together for every occasion. If you style them appropriately that is.
The weather here keeps getting hotter and hotter by the day. Since I have already planned my spring sewing, I am actually being forced to go step further and wear summer attire! To be fair this only happens on some days in the moon, but still…

According to Winifred Aldrich:
” A block pattern is a foundation pattern constructed to fit an average figure. […] The designer uses a foundation pattern as a basis for making tie pattern for a design. They may introduce style lines, tucks, gathers, pleats etc.
The basic Block can be drafted to fit individual figures by using personal measurements.
