Quote from: Philippa on October 25, 2018, 05:58:26 amAm in planning mode - does anyone have any ideas of a pattern so I can copy this tophttps://thefoldlondon.com/product/belmore-top-blush-pink-tweed/Such beautiful, classic designs - at eye watering prices..
Quote from: CCL on October 25, 2018, 10:11:15 amPhillipa -- here's the link to one of the Lekala patterns that could perhaps be adjusted.#4289 For the dress, here's one that perhaps you could start with, and again, maybe adjust.#4422In a quick perusal, I saw a couple of others - in the dress and top categories that might make good starting places. I find the price inexpensive enough to gamble on experimenting with their patterns. Hope that helps.
Quote from: Lisanne on October 25, 2018, 05:10:46 pmThis is a bit off tangent to SWAP, but the Eileen Fisher link I put above gave prices in £, around £400-£600, twice what The Fold charges. Similar to what EF charges at their London outlet.The EF US site insists on giving me prices in £, but it's a very very long time since I saw a jacket from EF costing £100. Where did you get that price from ?Zara in the UK is a cheap fast fashion store only slightly up from H&M, not making any claims to boutique quality.Perhaps I should not have tried to compare brands across countries as, despite our assumptions about the international nature of style and fashion, perceptions can be so different. Brands can present themselves so differently in different markets. I think we have already seen that with sewing machines !

Still, I can't imagine sitting out SWAP this year. I'm looking at pants fitting videos and books to get myself ready!
