Couture pattern puzzles?

Posted by purplecleo on 2011.09.07 at 21:38
Anyone know of sources for free couture patterns or pattern puzzles like the ones here? I'd be open to some for-purchase ones too if there is such a thing?

I snagged all the ones listed in 2004 and the versions I have come with instructions or at least hints. If you want the hints let me know and I can get them to you. I've never opened them to look, just did my usual archive for later that never comes. I have a watanabe for comme des garcons from showstudio as well, with no instructions. I'm not even sure what it makes any more.

Here are links of all of the ones I know of, if anyone else is interested:





The McQueen one is available at the first link in the original post.

Am I missing some or do you know of any more similar projects? I am really interested in the idea of sharing "free form" patterns to see how different people interpret them.

These two from the same site:


I don't know of any similar as far as coture, but I have a ton of historical that are basically the same thing.

Does anyone have any helpful hints or instructions for the Galliano pattern? I enlarged it and have tried to figure out the construction on my own, but have not had much success. I seem to go back to it every couple of months thinking that looking at it with new eyes (and a bit more experience under my belt) might help, but so far I've not been able to figure this out. Any help would be much appreciated.

Just found a semi-similar one here
