With some very clever spatial reasoning our fans we able to solve all the detail in Saturdays #PatternPuzzle. They were cutting up bits of paper and making impossibly small skirts into the wee hours to reveal all the answers. They make our Saturdays so much fun. :) This weeks #PatternPuzzle was inspired by one of those pins without a link to the source but I'm pretty sure it's a Donna Karan. I did leave off a bit of the frippery (small drape near the waist) as I prefer a cleaner style and there is already so much going on in this skirt. Pinstripe fabric is the driving force in this design, with the directional use making so much of the intricate panels. The Colour Map below will help make sense of all the pattern pieces and where they belong in the skirt.
