A few things made without patterns or using a shop bought item to get the size right.
Skirts and brown top made using commercial garments as a size and shape guide. The original skirt was a pencil skirt.
Sometimes I can’t find a pattern for what I want to wear, or it uses more fabric than I have.
I’ve often made things from patterns that don’t fit (I hardly ever make a toile because I am too impatient) or maybe they don’t look like I hoped.
For all these reasons I’ve been experimenting with making clothes without commercial patterns. It doesn’t always work but it is fun and I intend to do more of it.
