Welcome to Clothesline Patterns

From mood board to final design!

Here's my mood board inspired by some beautiful lampshades from industrial designer Tord Boontje.






It prompted a series of design developments.  One of which was made up on a half scale mannequin.  Then there was the pattern making and experimenting with constructing a pinata of an underskirt in boning and mesh.  Then the 40 white leaves were glued in place and Ta Da!  It all looks so easy when some gorgeous young thing like Emily is wearing the final result!
